I’m very proud to share that I’ve had a painting selected for the ING Discerning Eye exhibition in London for the third year in succession. My selected work is an oil painting of a peat black ploughed field from a weekend on the Somerset Levels in the Spring.
The Discerning Eye annual exhibition is a show of small works independently selected by six prominent figures from different areas of the art world: two artists, two collectors and two critics. This gives the impression of six individually curated exhibitions with separate personalities. They always have a “celebrity” collector, this year it is Celia Imrie. It’s alway interesting to see who has picked your work and how it fits in on their wall.
It was originally supported by the late Brian Sewell who thought that small works were often overlooked in the art market.
Here is this years work along with my previous submissions and private view photos. (Note to self, work harder to avoid appalling glare in photos!)
It’s well worth a visit if you are in London but if you can’t make it then don’t forget that you can see my work at the Portishead Lido cafe again in a few weeks from the 25-27th of November. I’ll be exhibiting again with the Portishead Arts group.
The 2016 Discerning Eye Exhibition will be open from Thursday 17 November until Sunday 27 November, between 10am and 5pm daily, at the Mall Galleries, The Mall, London SW1, just to be clear that I’m not talking about a Bristol shopping centre. Admission will be free and all the works will be for sale.
