ING Discerning Eye 2013: Call for Entries

ING Discerning Eye 2013: Call for Entries
Artists are invited to submit works for the 2013 exhibition
Deadline for Entries: 7 September 2013
Submission fee: £10 per work

Sponsored by ING Commercial Banking, the ING Discerning Eye Exhibition is a show of small works independently selected by six prominent figures from the art world: two artists, two collectors and two critics.

The 2013 selectors are: Artists, Stephen Farthing RA and Eileen Hogan; collectors, Loyd Grossman OBE (television presenter, gastronome and art historian) and Professor Deborah Swallow (Director of the Courtauld Institute of Art); and critics, Liz Anderson (Arts Editor, The Spectator), and Estelle Lovatt FRSA (art critic and lecturer). The selectors will curate their own section of the exhibition, resulting in six smaller exhibitions within one, each with very distinct personalities.

The uniqueness of having each work chosen by an eminent individual, unlike in a group selected show, has earned the exhibition an excellent reputation among art lovers and collectors alike. Work is selected by open submission and also from artists invited by the selectors. The works of lesser‐known artists are given the opportunity to hang alongside the work of more established artists helping to connect hundreds of new artists with new audiences.

Artists may submit up to six works for competition. Painting, prints, drawing, photography and sculpture are all accepted. All works must be for sale and should not exceed 20” (50cm) in their largest dimension. An exhibition of selected works will take place at the Mall Galleries, London from 14 – 24 November 2013.

Works are submitted to regional collection centres OR on the final hand in dates to the Mall Galleries in London on 6 and 7 September 2013
