Looking for something extra to get involved with? 

The Art for Christmas exhibition is a creative platform for artists to showcase a mixed media of work covering a variety of subjects including: local life, landscape, nature and wildlife. Previously pieces have included paintings, photography, wood carving and embroidery. The exhibition is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate wonderful arts and crafts from Yorkshire and beyond.

Over the years the exhibition has received a large number of entries. Each artist is welcome to submit up to three pieces for consideration and the staff and volunteers at Nunnington Hall then have the difficult task of selecting around fifty final pieces for display.

All submissions must be received by Sunday 7 October and the successful applicants will be notified within five days. Artwork will need to be delivered to the property by Sunday 4 November.

All profits will contribute towards the conservation care of Nunnington Hall and its collection.
If you would like the opportunity to be involved, please download and complete the submission form. (PDF / 0,1MB) download    

The Art for Christmas exhibition will be open each weekend from Saturday 17 November until Sunday 16 December, 10.30am – 4pm.
