Call for Artists
Cleveland Way in Miniature
We're inviting established and emerging artists to submit miniature works of art on postcards for a late spring exhibition, Cleveland Way in Miniature, which begins on 11 May 2019.
Artists are invited to submit an application to the gallery by 1 May 2019. They can submit up to 6 original pieces of postcard art inspired by the Cleveland Way National Trail at 50 using any medium – from drawings, photographs and paintings through to printmaking and textiles. Each postcard will remain unsigned when it’s on display, with the artist’s name only being revealed after each card has been purchased.
North York Moors Art Award
The North York Moors National Park Trust and the Inspired by... gallery have teamed up to host the inaugural North York Moors Art Award. We are inviting established and emerging artists to submit works of art (any paint media) that explores their connection with the landscape for a summer exhibition, Landscapes of the Mind and Heart, which begins on 3 August.
Artists are invited to submit their entries by 31 May and can submit a single entry only. Prizes will be awarded for the judges two favourite pieces. There will also be a ‘people’s choice’ award for the work of art voted as most popular by the public during the exhibition. Please see full details of the submission process and the prizes available here.
