Carriage House Art Exhibition Programme 2020

Room with hanging pictures

Burton Constable is delighted to announce that it's popular Carriage House community art exhibition programme will be running again in 2020, providing an invaluable opportunity for developing artists to exhibit their work.

Set in the Capability Brown Parkland of Burton Constable Hall and situated in the Carriage House of Timothy Lightoler's exceptional Georgian stables, the site's 36,000 annual visitors can view the carriage house as part of the standard grounds admission charge. This purpose-built exhibition space is situated just a short walk from the Stables Kitchen.

"The Carriage House exhibition space was created using funding by the National Lottery Heritage Fund specifically to engage with early-career artists" explains Curator Philippa Wood. "We have seen a huge variety of art forms in the exhibition space by groups and individuals, and are very excited to see what the next season will bring".

Applications for the exhibition space close on 13th September; for details contact Philippa Wood at philippawood@burtonconstable.com. Artists are responsible for installing and uninstalling all works, and for providing promotional materials.
