In 2007 the bursary was renamed in memory of David Gluck, who contributed so much to Discerning Eye and its annual exhibition. David was a selector for the main exhibition in 1998 and became a committed member of The DE Educational Advisory Board, who steer the Discerning Eye's charitable educational activities.
The bursary is open to any artist resident in the UK. Applicants are asked to submit online up to three images and a short written proposal that demonstrates how the bursary will benefit their current practice. A nominal fee of £3 is charged to enter. From this open submission, a number of artists are shortlisted and invited to exhibit their work at the ING Discerning Exhibition. The winning artist receives £1,500 and each runner up receives £150.
Our grateful thanks go to each member of the Discerning Eye Educational Advisory Board, particularly for their time and good judgement: Tom Coates PPNEAC, Anita Klein PPRE, James Lloyd and Nicholas Usherwood.
