As the aim of The Discerner is to connect artists with art lovers and collectors, we take pride in constantly implementing new ways of interaction between both parties.
In addition to publishing The Discerner magazine, and growing our online gallery, we also support our artists in the promotion of their work by hosting exclusive art events, and by inviting our thousands of readers to attend their solo or group exhibitions.

When I create I seem to tap into the real me, into something bigger than my present body, into the endless possibilities of this universe.
And I feel complete.
Painting is my tool to bring beauty and wellbeing to you.
I am passionate about colour, harmony and abstraction.
Alice Parmelee Rich has been involved in the art field, and in art related businesses, most of her life. Her career has included photographer, gallery administrator, publisher, and educator.

Born in Ayrshire, Philip Maltman trained at Hornsey and Ravensbourne Colleges of Art and ran two successful Art Departments until the end of the nineties combining this with a busy exhibition programme. His work, initially experimental and heavy with text and inspired by meetings with Don Van Vliet, Alan Davie, Richard Demarco and Joseph Beuys, became concerned with figure and landscape through the seventies. A mutual interest in James Joyce led to correspondence with, and a lecture on, Robert Motherwell, in the eighties, culminating in purely abstract works at the beginning of the nineties. After that a return to his childhood home led to work based on the shoreline, natural and man made, which has endured. Currently work based on Aelbert Cuyp and Monet has led to a freeing up of paint and a re-introduction of text.
