Discerning Eye
Exhibition 2021


Mall Galleries, London: 12th - 21st November 2021

Online: 12th November - 31st December 2021


The 2021 ING Discerning Eye exhibition, the 30th annual exhibition, will open at the Mall Galleries and online on 12 November 2021. 

The exhibition runs at the Mall Galleries until the 21st November 2021, and continues online until the 31st December 2021.


It is a show of small, domestic scale works, individually selected from publically submitted and personally invited works, by six prominent figures from different areas of the art world: two artists, two collectors and two critics. All artists must be based in the UK and works must be for sale.


It provides a rare opportunity for works by as yet lesser-known artists to be hung alongside contributions from internationally recognised names. Buyers are introduced to new artists alongside those they may already know


The annual exhibition has been generously supported by our exhibition sponsor ING for many years.

In addition to providing artists the opportunity to sell their works in 2021 prizes valued in excess of £10,000 will be awarded.
