Society of Painters in Water-Mixable Oils

The Society was officially launched on 25th of February 2020 from right here on the Isle of Wight by Murray Ince. Murray wanted to create a society for all those who worked in the much misunderstood, and even maligned medium. Unlike traditional oils no mineral spirits are required in their use, instead simple tap water can be used to thin paint and clean up afterwards making it far more eco-friendly than traditional oil paints. The Society is a learning platform, a place for encouragement, an online presence for viewing art created in this wonderful medium and is a membership driven entity of both amateurs and professional artists who wish to share the truth about, and joy of working in this liberating medium.

This exhibition is the very first ever staged by the Society and as it all began here on the Island it is fitting that the first exhibition should be here at Quarr Abbey and represented by some of the Society’s founding members. We hope you enjoy looking at the paintings!

Welcome to the Abbey of Our Lady of Quarr, a monastery on the Isle of Wight, just off the south coast of England. It is home to a small group of Benedictine monks who strive to dedicate their lives to the glory of God, and whose day is characterised by prayer, work and community life.

Quarr Abbey is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Visitors are welcome to attend worship in the Abbey Church. You can visit our gardens, take refreshment in our Tea Shop and find out about the monastery in our Visitor Centre. The Farm Shop offers home grown produce and the Monastery Shop religious articles, books and souvenirs. There is a new exhibition of the work of local artists every week in the gallery.
