Flowers Gallery is pleased to announce the 23rd edition of Artist of the Day, a valuable platform for artists since 1983. This two week exhibition showcases the work of ten artists, chosen not by the gallery, but by established professional practitioners who have each nominated a talent of their choice.
Each selected artist will present a solo body of work at our Cork Street Gallery for one day only Monday - Friday. The selected artist will be present throughout the day, and will give a free talk at 1pm on their practice. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to book your place at the talks. Refreshments will be served.
At the weekend, a group exhibition featuring all of the artists displayed that week will be held from 11am - 6pm, providing a second chance to view the work.
The (original and longrunning) criteria for selection are talent, originality, promise and the ability to benefit from a one-day exhibition of their work. The chosen artists for 2016 cover the fields of drawing, painting, sculpture and photography, offering a unique glimpse into rising stars of the art world as chosen by some of the most prominent figures in contemporary art.
