There’s an endless need for artists to be discovered. The Art on Paper Magazine knows this and wants them to be recognized, so we feature events, art galleries, exhibits, and conventions that showcase utmost craftsmanship.
Here are amazing events all around the world to experience if you’re a lover of art.
William Hunter to Damien Hirst: The Dead Teach The Living
This exhibit is one of the most thought provocative displays because of the exquisite blend of art and science. With artworks by Damien Hirst and rare objects from William Hunter’s 18th-century collection, this gallery shows the synergy between the advances and innovations of art through science. It’s a great place to go to especially if you’re looking for something outside of the box. The gallery includes the first showing of Damien Hirst’s Necromancer, which was painted in 2007. Along with Hirst’s and Hunter’s pieces, new works by Scott Rogers and Catherine Street are featured as well.
You may visit the exhibit at the Hunterian Art Gallery for free until the 5th of March 2017.
Hunterian Art Gallery, Glasgow
The late Winifred Knights is a visionary and fashion designer who represented art through dresses. With handspun and handwoven clothes, these artistic dresses have become such a rarity that the dresses were preserved and kept because of their unique fashion designs.
The gallery contains the dresses Knights created in her lifetime along with some of her iconic pieces.
If you’re into fashion and wine, this exhibit is perfect for you!
Dulwich Picture Gallery, SE21, Gallery Road, London
