THE latest provocative exhibition at Weston’s Lloyd Gill Gallery will be previewed this weekend.

The exhibition, A Sharp Eye to an Open Eye, will feature artists from Europe who paint using realism as their technique, alongside painters who use the theme of abstraction.

There will be an essay to accompany the exhibition which will discuss two artists Chuck Close and Pablo Picasso. The aim is to compare the techniques these two pioneers worked with in their paintings.

The exhibition will include work, which include paintings, sketches and photography, from artists Milan Ivanic, Gregory Chiha, David Lewis, Luke Austin-Heywood, Rebecca Cains, Eve Harvey and Helen Bur.

The Beaconsfield Road gallery will hold a preview night for the exhibition on Saturday from 7pm.

It will then be displayed from Monday to June 22, from 10am to 4.30pm.
