Nunnington Hall Exhibition Opportunity


I’m contacting you on behalf of National Trust property Nunnington Hall in North Yorkshire regarding our upcoming exhibition Art for Christmas. This special exhibition is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate wonderful arts and crafts from the Yorkshire region and beyond.
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.  In the past the pieces have included paintings, photography, wood carving and embroidery.
All submissions must be received by Sunday 21 October and the successful applicants will be notified within three days. Artwork will need to be delivered to the property by Sunday 4 November. All profits will contribute towards the care of Nunnington Hall and its collection.

Please find below more information about the exhibition along with an application form. 
Kind regards
