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.


For artists the Exhibition is an opportunity to have work hung alongside that of well-known and established names at a major London art venue: visitors to the venue have the opportunity not only to encounter the works in their own right but also to experience the effect of this juxtaposition.  The work was selected from open submission and from artists invited by the individual selectors. Each selector's section is hung separately giving the impression of six small exhibitions within the whole.  This year's selectors are:

-Dan Coombs
-Chris Orr RA
-Celia Imrie
-Ian Mayes QC
-Michael Glover
-Sacha Craddock

The selectors were solely responsible for their own selection; selection was not by committee. The only restrictions were limitation of size (only small works are permitted) and to select at least 25% of their section from the open submission.
