ABOUT THE DISCERNING EYE
''The ING Discerning Eye is an educational charity, established in the UK in 1990, to encourage a wider understanding and appreciation of the visual arts and to stimulate debate about the place and purpose of art in our society, and the contribution each one of us can make to its development.
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 (Dale Lewis, David Remfry RA), two collectors (Beverley Knight & Mervyn Metcalf) and two critics (Jo Baring, Tabish Khan).

Each section is hung separately to give each its own distinctive identity.
