JD Malat Gallery is offering all UK-based artists the chance to showcase and sell their work at the prestigious Mayfair Gallery from 1st-8th July in Isolation Mastered, a unique group exhibition of 20 artists who demonstrate a creative response to the COVID-19 isolation period.
The committee carefully reviewing submissions include Dylan Jones, Gavin Rossdale, Gavin Turk, Robert Montgomery, Sotheby’s Institute’s Professor David Bellingham, Art Dealer Simon de Pury and artist Katrin Fridriks.
Leading the committee is JD Malat Gallery owner and celebrity art dealer Jean-David Malat, who deals to everybody from royals to Madonna, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bono, Gordon Ramsay and Kate Moss. All profits made from the exhibition will be given to the artists involved, to support the art community during this challenging but hopeful time, as they gradually ease out of lockdown and look to the future.
