Outside In is working with Daily Life Ltd and Bethlem Gallery to put on a display of work in East London and we're looking for people to enter their work. The work chosen for the display will be shown in light boxes (see picture to the right).
If your work is chosen, a high quality photograph will be printed and put in the light box – not your actual work.
The exhibition is called 'Letting in the Light' and what you submit could be:
– Work that shares something about your life
– Work that shows something you care about
– Work that shares something about you as a person or as an artist
– Work that lights up the lives of passers by in Stratford during the gloomy winter months
You can submit one or two works for selection which can be any form of art, for example painting, photography, sculpture.
Artist and Artistic Director Bobby Baker says "I was judged and underestimated because of my mental health problems, but when people see my autobiographical drawings its helps change the way they think about mental health. Artists like us, with unique experiences, can create work that enlightens and delights people. If this idea of showing our combined strengths strikes a chord with you, and you have work you love and would like to show the people of Newham, do send it in!"
You will know if your work will be part of the display by the end of November.
How to submit work:
Submitting work is free. To enter, you will need to email photographs (no bigger than 3MB) of up to two works in any medium for selection to email@example.com. As the works will be viewed on a screen, the photograph(s) emailed must be good quality. Information required includes: artist name, titles of works, and a brief description of each piece (no more than 100 words).
You will need to have entered your work by 5pm on Friday 6th November. The exhibition will take place in Gerry Raffles Square, Stratford, London.
