"I am delightedthat we have been able to supportsuch outstanding projects createdby some of the best architects."Wales'sinspiration Cardiff's £6.5m National Museumof Art is to open on 9 July, givingthe first comprehensive survey ofWales's national collection of visualcreativity mixing fine and appliedart, the historic and thecontemporary. Six contemporaryart galleries, where before therewas only one, will be the biggestspace of its kind in Wales, butthere will also be Old Masterpaintings from as early as the 16thcentury, while Pablo Picasso'sstriking Still Life with Poron(1948)was the first oil painting by theartist to enter a Welsh publiccollection, in 2009. DavidAnderson, Director of the NationalMuseum, said the country'scollection of works by Welsh artistsand international names isoutstanding. "For the first time thenation has galleries of aninternational standard that tell theunique story of Welsh art and howthe country had evolved," he said."Our mission is to inspire thecreativity of future generations.These galleries are a vital part ofthat strategy."The Museum of London has announced 11 voluntary redundancies,including three senior curators, to meet a 10% cut, or £1m, from itsbudget for this year. The Curators of pre-history, Roman London andphotography are to go, but a new post of Senior Curator of pre-historyand Roman London is being created. Two Collections Car Experts andsix Gallery Hosts are also to go. The redundancies were seen to benecessary because of cuts from the museum's funders, the Corporationof London and the Greater London Authority.Museum of London cuts 11 jobsChancellor George Osborne has homed in on philanthropy as theprincipal area for arts encouragement, with tax rule changes in his springBudget. These consist of:A simplification of Gift Aid so that returns can be made online for eachdonation, and a ceiling of benefit limits rising from £500 to £2,500. With anew scheme whereby Gift Aid can be claimed on small donations,Osborne said 100,000 charities could benefit by £240m.A cut in inheritance tax from 40% to 36%.Consultations to start later this year on making gifts of art during thedonor's lifetime eligible for acceptance in lieu of tax. Osborne said the measures were in support of Culture Secretary JeremyHunt's 10-point philanthropy plan announced in December.Gift Aid improved£50m. Turner had been inspired bythe northern light at Margate, still afascination for artists - some ofwhom have been commissionedfor the first Turner Contemporary."We think we understand hiswork but I'm not sure that we do;artists imagine all the time andsometimes what is fact and what isfiction becomes very blurred," saidVictoria Pomery, the gallery'sDirector. "So we're asking artists toplay around with their imaginations,pick up a bit of Turner perhaps,but not necessarily. "It's a celebration of being aware of the wonder of the naturalworld, but also standing inamazement staring at this naturalphenomenon. Building a gallery inMargate, you're aware of this sort of wonder and awe here; it's the potential of the place togive people a sense of it too that is so exciting."Left: The Turner ContemporaryArt Gallery in Margate wasdesigned by award-winningarchitect David Chipperfield
