Outside In National exhibition prize winner Alan Payler and artists who attend the Community Art Project in Darlington.
2 to 24 April 2022 – Phoenix Art Space, Brighton,
21 April to September – online exhibition.
Outside In is excited to present ‘Under A Blue Sky’ the solo show of Alan Payler and the result of Alan winning first prize at Outside In’s National exhibition Environments for a piece made in felt tip pen titled ‘The Garden’.
The National exhibition was the result of a call-out from the award-winning arts charity in which saw more than 900 artists submit from across the UK and the Republic of Ireland. Alan was one of three prize-winners selected by the judging panel – Grayson Perry, Cathie Pilkington and Robert Travers.
Grayson Perry said: “Art is a purely subjective thing. The winning work was the work of art that most closely aligned with something I would be happy to make myself and gave me joy. Also it was like something I had never seen before. I would very much like to come and see Alan’s solo show in Brighton.”
As well as showcasing Alan’s colourful work, Under A Blue Sky will also feature art by other members of the Community Art Project in Darlington, an arts studio for adults with learning disabilities where much of Alan’s artwork was created.
