After the Monet

‘After the Monet’ exhibition 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. All the artists were selected by the ‘hanging committee’ from the original exhibition from the 2012 series of BBC2’s popular art competition ‘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 150 shortlisted artistic 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 in 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?

Artists: Anne Blankson-Hemans, Sarah Caswell, Timothy Gatenby, ARINA, Richard Howell, Jacqui Jones, Oliver Jones, Kevin Lee, Gillian Lee Smith, Gill Levin, Georgina Maxwell, Charles Moxon, Kirsty O’leary-Leeson, Shani Osman, William Pearce, Kerri Pratt, Thomas Prendeville, Trish Spence, Caroline Summerfield, Diana Bernice Tackley.
