North East Emerging Artist Award

Your chance to explore work from emerging and early career artists in or from the region. See the final pieces from the three 2022/23 winners and vote for your favourite from the shortlisted eight for 2023/24.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

A collaboration between curator, Matthew Jarratt and Seaton Delaval Hall, the NE Emerging Artist Award takes inspiration from the hall’s long-standing history of supporting and encouraging emerging creative talent. The award aims to showcase site specific contemporary art in an historic context. See 2022/23 winners Rachel Blackwell’s Flight of the Pipistrelles, inspired by the bats that live in the hall; Jacob Goff’s Many Hands, exploring the contributions made by volunteers and Wambui Hardcastle’s Time Flies in the Blink of an Eye, which encourages you to think about Seaton Delaval Hall in the future.

In addition, you can visit the Stables and see the exhibition of the proposals from the shortlisted eight artists for 2023/24 and vote for your favourite.
