Artists from across Lichfield and Burntwood are being invited to showcase their work at the Fuse festival in July.

Lichfield District Council and Lichfield Arts Association are working in partnership to present Art in the Tent at Beacon Park on July 13 and 14 as part of the free community arts festival.

Councillor Val Richards said: “Thousands of people come to Fuse in Beacon Park each year, and this is a fantastic opportunity for our local talented artists to show and sell their work to this massive audience.

“We’re asking artists to contribute £10 for every exhibition panel they use, which will cover the cost of setting up the exhibition.”

To reserve an exhibition panel, artists need to complete an entry form, giving the name, title, medium and sale price of each piece. The closing date for completed forms is June 29.

“We are also hoping artists will volunteer some of their time to help the team set up the exhibition and run the front of house,” Cllr Richard added.

Artists can find out more, volunteer and download an entry form at www.lichfielddc.gov.uk/art.
