CELF surgery day
An opportunity for artists through project Outside In - providing a platform for artists who see themselves as facing barriers...read more...
...to the art world due to health, disability, social circumstance or isolation.
The goal of the Outside In project is to create a fairer art world which rejects traditional values and institutional judgements about whose work can and should be displayed.
As a national project, we realise that a lot of artists we work with and support do not have the skills or facilities to digitally showcase their work to show it to wider audiences and so we hold Surgery Days to help artists to get involved.
We are holding an upcoming Surgery Day in mid-Wales - where we will help artists photograph five pieces of work, assist them with writing an artist statement and sign them up for an online gallery on our website.
Once an artist has a gallery on our site, they are able to receive comments on their work, submit their work to regional and national exhibitions, as well as adding a piece of work to be for sale in the online shop too if they wish.
Our next national exhibition, which is craft based, is taking place next year, and we are currently looking for submissions.
At the Surgery Day, we will let artists know about this opportunity and can help them to submit work for possible inclusion in the show.
You can find out more about this opportunity here: http://outsidein.org.uk/news_and_events?item_id0=16111
As a note, even if the artist's work is not selected for the exhibition, it is still shown within the exhibition space, often on a rolling screen.
You can find out more about the project by visiting www.outsidein.org.uk.
If any artists would like to sign up for a 1 hour one-to-one session at the Surgery Day, please contact Hannah Whitlock, our Artist Coordinator by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 01243 770845.
There is also a how-to-guide on how to create an online gallery which can be sent to you as well.
