The Visual Arts Data Service: The AHDS Centre for Visual Arts (VADS) is
delighted to announce the launch of www.fineart.ac.uk, a new online resource
of art works selected from the Council for National Academic Awards
Collection (CNAA), and from the collections of some of the UK’s finest art
colleges and universities. This new web-based collection is dedicated to
work by staff, students and other alumnus of UK higher education
institutions that have made a significant contribution to higher education
fine art practice.

The site makes available online an initial selection of 200 works by more
than 100 artists who have studied and taught fine art in the UK, together
with supporting information. The selection of works covers the period from
the mid 19th century through to the present day and includes work from many
important figures in British Art such as Henry Moore, Bridget Riley and
Richard Hamilton.

The main purposes of fineart.ac.uk are to:

- celebrate the achievements of art education in the UK
- provide a resource for teaching and learning
- encourage scholarship and research
- offer a framework for an historical picture of the developments in the
field
- provide access to inaccessible and otherwise hidden collections
- serve as a living collection incorporating contemporary practice

The site has been developed following a feasibility study commissioned by
the CNAA Trustees, with the support of the Conference for Higher Education
in Art and Design (CHEAD) and the National Association of Fine Art Education
into the demand for a national collection to represent the nature, history
and achievements of higher education teaching within fine art practice.
Work on the project has been carried out by VADS located at the Surrey
Institute of Art and Design, University College.

Ten higher education institutes have participated in this initial phase of
the website’s developments and include: Glasgow School of Art, the London
Institute, Norwich School of Art, Royal College of Art, the Slade School of
Fine Art and the Universities of Central England, Brighton, Dundee, Leeds
and Ulster.
