Show Me the Monet

The art world’s version of The X Factor and Dragons’s Den, Show Me The Monet has a group of mainly amateur artists battling to get their artwork shown in the Mall Galleries in London.

Show Me the Monet  is a reality competition for artists to earn a spot in the grand exhibition in London, where the public and art insiders, alike, bid on the artwork. But in order to make it into the exhibition and a chance to earn serious cash, the hopefuls must face the Hanging Committee, a group of three judges. The pieces of art the contestants put up for the judges’ critique include paintings and sculptures.
