The North East Emerging Artist Award

Wed – Sun, 10am – 5pm

Seaton Delaval Hall

A chance to see the final artworks from the three winners of last year's North East Emerging Artist Award.

This exhibition sees the final work by last year’s three winners, Rachel Blackwell’s Flight of the Pipistrelles, Jacob Goff’s Many Hands and Wambui Hardcastle’s Time Flies in the Blink of an Eye displayed alongside the proposals from this year’s shortlisted artists.

The North East Emerging Artist Award was established in 2021 and developed by independent curator Matthew Jarratt and Seaton Delaval Hall’s General Manager, Emma Thomas. It is open to artists from all artforms including music, sound, theatre, film, fashion, literature and design as well as fine art and is for artists in or from the North East who are in the final year of their undergraduate degree, studying for a masters’ degree, who have graduated in the last three years or equivalent. The award’s aim is to showcase site-specific contemporary art in a historic context and to encourage emerging artists to develop proposals at the hall.
