A painting at the 2017 ING Discerning Eye Exhibition (Update)

Grey Clouds, Sunshine, Carnaby

Grey Clouds, Sunshine, Carnaby - An Original Oil and Acrylic Painting by Mark GisbourneIt is with the greatest pleasure to announce that I will be exhibiting a painting at this year’s ING Discerning Eye Exhibition at The Mall Galleries, London. The work is called ‘Grey Clouds, Sunshine, Carnaby’ and is painted in oil and acrylic on board. It is inspired by my many trips to the capital and my time spent in and around Soho. I was fascinated by the composition of the passing rain clouds, the sun shining on the buildings and the eye popping sign in the foreground.

If you’re in London this autumn, pop by and have a look round this prestigious annual show.

The exhibition runs from November 16-26. Admission is free and all works are for sale.

If you can’t make the exhibition, please visit the ING Discerning Eye 2017 website for information about the availability of my original painting and the limited edition print here.

You can view my work, selected by art critic Simon Tait, at the Discerning Eye Gallery here.

Varnishing Day: Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2011

Varnishing Day At The RA 2011

Having submitted, and consequently failed to have a piece of artwork displayed at the Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition in the previous three years, it was a great honour to show a small painting titled Lab Snack Van at their 2011 show. Here are a selection of photos from Varnishing Day.
