Artists’ Testimonials

Caia

I was approached by The Discerner Magazine and invited to submit images of my work to be published in the monthly magazine. After some correspondence with the Editor in Chief Celine Gaurier-Joubert I decided to advertise for a few months in the run up to Christmas. The magazine is distributed across Mayfair in London, one of my key client areas. Celineʼs enthusiasm about the magazine and her passion for my work combined with the 3 full page issues of the magazine has led to an invitation to exhibit with a Gallery in Mayfair in a few months time. Celine is a very passionate and driven lady and the whole experience with The Discerner Magazine has been a very positive . I will be continuing my relationship with The Discerner Magazine and would recommend artists wishing to gain more exposure for their work.

I have featured in The Discerner magazine for over a year now. Celine contacted me in early 2016 with her invitation to be part of her new magazine, and I was immediately impressed with her proposal and business plan. As Celine is a master pianist I knew she was a driven individual and this has proven to be the case. I initially committed to featuring for a few months but this continued into 2017 and I am still happy to feature. As a result of the continued visibility the gallery that represents me has had increased profitable enquiries. In addition, Celine works hard to increase artist visibility outside of print, and this month I am delighted to feature in the ‘It’s All About Piano’ exhibition that she has organised in conjunction with the French Institute.

” I was exhibiting at the Other Art Fair when I was approached by Celine Gaurier-Joubert to see if I would be interested in​ showing my work in her contemporary art magazine The Discerner. Her concept seemed pretty unique; direct mail to a contained central area of London with a high likelihood of art collectors, in a well laid out small glossy magazine with a hand-picked collection of International artists. This was a great opportunity to show a curated selection of my work on a full page spread at a very reasonable rate without the usual extortionate gallery commission leveraged on sales. In my second month I was invited to show one of my paintings on the front cover. It sold straight away, with the personal help & negotiation of Celine, to a retired diplomat and we were able to deliver and hang the work without any extra cost to ourselves or the buyer. The whole experience was seamless. In addition Celine curated an exhibition of selected works of the some of the artists at The Discerner headquarters in December with a soiree opening for a number of private collectors; a chance for them to meet the artists and see their work in the flesh. Being in The Discerner is an unparalleled privilege; to be part of a boutique brand of selected artists with direct access to serious art collectors in the heart of one of the top cities for art in the world today.”
