Stables Community Art Gallery

Burton Constable Hall are re-opening applications for artists to host their own display in the Stables’ Community Art Gallery during the 2022 season.

This exciting exhibition scheme has in the past seen new and emerging artists gain their first public display of works – and sales besides! The gallery space, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, allows both individuals and groups an opportunity to showcase their work in a free-of-charge gallery at this beautiful historic house site which sees over 30,000 visitors each year discover different delights and talking-points.

Interested in finding out more?

For full information and to read our Terms and Conditions, please see the application form and waiver below.

The application deadline is 10th December 2021. The waiver need not be completed until the applicant has received an invitation to exhibit.

*Due to the nature of this space artists would be responsible for their own installation and creating their own promotional materials, but Burton Constable would feature the exhibition on the Foundation’s website and social media outlets; artists are welcome to exhibit individually or collaboratively. We regret that Burton Constable is unable to pay artists expenses or to handle sales, although artists are welcome to invite sales to be handled in person at the close of the exhibition free of commission. Exhibitions relating to the East Riding area or to Burton Constable itself are particularly welcome.
