ImageFitzwilliam joins national scheme to help budding artists

The Fitzwilliam Museum has become one of the national partners of Outside In, an organisation helping artists who find it difficult to access the art world due to health, disability or social circumstance.

As a partner museum it will be holding a surgery day to help individual artists participate in the scheme, photographing works and helping to set up individual portfolio galleries on the Outside In website.

Each artist will be able to submit two pieces of art from their online gallery to go forward for selection for the national Outside In exhibition at National at Pallant House Gallery from October 2012 to February 2013.

Rachel Sinfield, Head of Education at the Fitzwilliam Museum commented: "Outside In offers a significant opportunity for talented artists to promote their works online if they find it difficult to access the art world for a variety of reasons. We are delighted to be a project partner for this initiative, and we hope we can encourage artists from the Cambridgshire region to take advantage of this opportunity to showcase their art."

The Fitzwilliam Museum surgery is on Thursday 12 January 2012, places are limited so please call in advance to reserve your space on 01223 332 904. For more information about Outside In please visit: www.outsidein.org.uk.
