From Eastleigh To New York... And Beyond
Following hot on the heels of two large-scale commissions, our visual artist Eve Dawson has been selected to exhibit her work on the New York-based online gallery gathered.com
Only a handful of artists from across the globe are featured on the prestigious site so this is a huge coup for Eve.
Gathered is the passion of New York artist, collector and curator Elizabeth Kairys Allspaw, who frustrated at not being able to access great art, created the online gallery as a way of connecting art lovers and collectors with international artists.
Renowned for having a great eye and superb taste, Elizabeth is particularly interested in "slightly dark, slightly off, totally beautiful, original pieces". Gathered features not only polished, finished pieces, but also what happens in the margins of art and of life. Sketchbooks, to-do lists, diagrams, Gathered explores the entire range.
Eve's work is the perfect fit for the Gathered community as Elizabeth explained:
“Eve's work is fresh, energetic and playful and captures her love of process and exploration for meaning in everyday things. While her work is bold, it is also diverse enough to fit well in any space. The scale of her work varies as well, with pieces meant for a smaller wall and ones that could command a larger space."
On being selected to be exhibited on Gathered, Eve said: “I’m thrilled. Gathered has a tremendous reputation in the art world, a wide following. It’s wonderful to know that my work is being exhibited on such a global stage.”
