London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) May 23, 2008 -- LOOK AROUND AND PAINT
On Sunday the 4th of May,another edition of "Catch by the eye save in the heart"took place at London Mayfair, the third in the series of group exhibitions under the direction of Magdalena Rutkowska. A team of artists with different background exhibited their work,and together create a painting along with the general public.
The exhibition offers an exciting opportunity to emerging artists who are at a particular stage in their development, those falling between student and recognised artist status
The 3rd edition of the event took place at London Mayfair. The aim of the project was also to awaken the hidden artistic talent in the souls of visitors. The concept involves an empty canvas placed at the heart of the exhibition with paints and brushes left freely available. The participating artists encourage the visitors to create an irreplaceable piece of art.
On the opening of the exhibition Magdalena ,the creator of the project exhibited her work together with the artwork of Sarune Berberausaite, Marilyn Comparetto, Blandine Martin, Lucianna Whittaker, Natalia Levkovska, Janina Grinevich, Melinda McCarthy, Chiara Cola, Emma Blackwood, Abi Adeyemi, Fiona Long, Dawn Reader and Jason Parr. There were also two Polish artists.
