[D] The Third Eye has the pick ofthe exhibitions ofcontemporary Hungarian art and a beautifully installed show ofsculpture by one of Hungary's leading post-war sculptors. Erzsebet Schaar (1908—1975) Gallery 2 Until 9 Nov. Her later haunting figures with their realistic. even hyperrealist heads are trapped in cases ofwhiic plaster. isolated from each other symbols of human loneliness in the modern world. The show is in effect a small. but well-chosen retrospective of the artist's work. Gallery 1 is dominated by installations by three artists (until 9 Nov) who draw their inspiration from their Hungarian heritage. whether folkloric as in the case of Geza Samu. peasant as in the case of lmre Bukta or even gastronomic as in the case of Sandor Pinczehelyi. It is precisely their Hungarian-ness which gives their works. at least to a western eye, their individuality and richness. Geza Samu‘s forest of stripped and partially carved branches is particularly memorable.

at the Comers Gallery are all lowi. In her iirst solo exhibition she lovineg tocuses on the peculiar characteristics ot Bantam Belles, Sebright Cocks and Six Ribbon Game liens. ‘lt all began when i walked Into the poultry tent at last year’s Royal Highland Show’, says the 25 year old artist irom Pennsylvania. ‘I never dreamt there was such variety'.
