The Wapping Group of Artists was formally founded in 1946 and initially met to record the busy life of London’s dockland. Since then the Thames, the land either side of it, and the activity related to it have all undergone significant changes. As a result the group now meets to paint at venues anywhere between Henley and the Thames Estuary. Every Wednesday between April and September, whatever the weather, the ‘Wappers’ can be found at a chosen venue rising to the challenge and savouring the pleasures of plein-air painting. This companionable band of just 25 statutory members, all dedicated and capable painters, maintains the original group aims of fellowship and the enthusiastic recording and interpretation of London and the Thames.
