Terrace Treasures exhibition returns to Rievaulx

Terrace treasures outdoor exhibition art

After a fantastic first year, we’re proud and excited to be hosting our second Terrace Treasures exhibition. Once again we’re looking for artists and makers to participate, and help us showcase the creativity of Yorkshire.

The exhibition will run from Saturday 2 July to Sunday 2 October. Rievaulx Terrace is a busy property open seven days a week and welcomes around 32,000 visitors a year.

The sculptures will once again be displayed across the woodland and terrace, overlooking the famed ruined Rievaulx Abbey. Last year, over eighteen thousand people were able to enjoy the exhibition and many of the pieces were purchased by visitors. Each piece had its own story to tell, making the discovery of each work as you explore the site even more intriguing. The exhibition is a wonderful opportunity for local artists to showcase their talent, and a pleasure for Rievaulx Terrace to host such a creative show of work.

The pieces of work can be any type of media, though as the exhibition will be entirely outdoors, all works must be suitable for prolonged display open to the elements. The pieces must also be free-standing and suitable to stand on either the grass terrace or in the woodland. Artists are welcome to submit a maximum of five pieces for consideration. The closing date for all entries is Friday 17 June.
