The ING Discerning Eye annual exhibition is a show of small, domestic scale, works independently selected by six prominent figures from different areas of the art world: two artists, two collectors and two critics.
The selectors choose both from the publically submitted works and works by personally invited artists. Each selector's choice is theirs own alone and is hung in separate sections to give each its own distinctive identity.
The impression emerges of six small exhibitions within the whole.
It provides a rare opportunity for works by lesser-known artists to be hung alongside contributions from internationally recognised names.
The only restrictions are that the pieces must be for sale, the artists UK based, the size of the work (50cm in any dimension) and that the selectors choose at least 25% of their section from the open submission.
The annual exhibition has been generously supported by our exhibition sponsor ING since 1999.
