A key part of Pallant House Gallery's Award Winning Learning and Community Programme, Partners in Art provides opportunities for people with support needs to follow their interest in art by establishing creative partnerships. Carefully selected to meet the needs and creative ambitions of both the volunteer and referral partner, partnerships are encouraged to work together in an equal way with respect for each other's creativity and interests.

Stephen and Simon have been Partners in Art since 2010, but this will be their first exhibition together. Talking of the opportunity, Stephen says: "It's very nice of the Gallery to offer us both the space to exhibit in. I hope this two man show conveys something of the interaction between us in spite of our different approaches to painting."
