Outside In are launching in the Midlands. We are working with our partner Compton Verney Art Gallery & Park to bring you an exciting programme of activities for Outside In artists resident in the Midlands. As part of our Launch Event we are looking for artists to present at a Share Art event as part of the launch day on Friday 20th March.
Share Art enables artists to present and share their art to an audience of peers through a presentation of digital images of their work. Share Art is designed to be accessible to a range of artists, it provides an important means for artists to show and express thoughts about their artwork, receive feedback and validation. Outside In offers support to artists who would like to take part in Share Art, this can include helping to select work and prepare their presentations.
We are asking for a total of 7 artists to show between 5 to 10 images of their artwork on a PowerPoint presentation. By selecting work artists will:
- Hone their curating skills
- Express their artistic journey
- Build skills in public speaking
- Increase their confidence
- Gain access to a network of peers
Artists will talk about their artwork in front of an audience by selecting work which represents their current practice or their artistic journey. Artists will also have a chance to network and meet fellow artists during a tea break and after the event.
The launch day is also an opportunity for anyone in the area interested in Outside In to come along, find out more about the charity and meet members of the team. The launch starts at 11am with introductions and speeches followed by a tour of the gallery space at 12 noon and an opportunity to see works made by Outside In artists in response to Compton Verney’s permanent Folk Art collection.
If you would like to book a slot at the Share Art event or just attend the launch day to find out more, please get in touch with Midlands Hub Co-Ordinator Jose Forrest Tennant on email@example.com or 07496 997333.
