Award-winning charity Outside In’s national open exhibition, which features 80 artworks on the theme of ‘humanity’, will be showing at Project Ability in Glasgow from 12 August to 16 September 2023. This is the second leg of a national tour for the exhibition, which initially opened at Sotheby’s in London in January 2023, and which will go on to show at Brighton & Hove Museums from 25 November to 21 January 2024.

Humanity is the sixth National Open exhibition organised by the charity, which was established in 2006 to assist artists encountering significant barriers due to health, disability, social circumstance or isolation. The national call-out attracted a record number of entries by 500 artists and over half of the works on show are by artists who have never exhibited with Outside In before, many of whom have previously never exhibited at all. Images of all submitted work will also be shown alongside the 80 selected pieces.

Our gallery is open Wed- Sat, 11am -5pm and is wheelchair accessible.
