Exciting Opportunity for Local Artists

Burton Constable is inviting new and emerging local artists to apply for an opportunity to host their first exhibition at Burton Constable Hall in 2023 as applications open for the Stables Community Gallery.

Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, this space allows a mixture of community art groups and emerging artists to showcase their work to the public, often for the very first time. This exciting free to hire exhibition space gives an opportunity for those who would otherwise struggle to display and sell their work a chance to show what they can do – and gives visitors a refreshing taste of something different as the exhibitions change constantly throughout the year in a kaleidoscope of colours and artistic styles. In 2022 alone the space has been home to displays of textile art and paintings, social commentaries and fundraising exhibitions by the Viola Trust.

Do you have a flair for the artistic and a collection of artwork that is simply begging for a space to allow you to display it to the public for the first time? We want to hear from you!
