‘After the Monet’ showcases a diverse and stunning selection of both 2 and 3 dimensional artworks from the cream of Britain’s most talented emerging and established contemporary artists. The 20 artists all featured in the 2012 series of BBC2’s popular art competiton ‘Show me the Monet’.
The fifteen part series followed amateur and professional artists as they competed for a coveted place at the ‘Show me the Monet’ Grand Exhibition and Sale at the Mall Galleries in London. From an original 3000 applicants just over a hundred shortlisted contenders faced the ‘Hanging Committee’ - a panel of judges drawn from some of the art world’s toughest critics: Charlotte Mullins, David Lee and Roy Bolton. The judges were looking for originality, technical skill and emotional impact and to earn their place at the exhibition the artists needed to gain the approval of at least two members of the panel. It was a chance of a lifetime to get their work seen – and bought – by professional art buyers and the public alike.
Now at the Coningsby Gallery exhibition many of the successful artists have come together again to present superb examples of their work in ‘After the Monet’. Did the critics get it right? Be sure to see the exhibition and meet the artists at ‘After the Monet’,
