Submissions can be made in all mediums including ceramics, digital, drawing, glass, mixed media, painting, photography and sculpture and are invited from artists who live, work or study in County Durham. 

Submission guidelines:

-Artists can submit up to 3 artworks to exhibit (we will endeavour to display at least two works from each artist) 

-Due to space limitations, 2D artworks including frames must not exceed 80cm x 80cm

-All 2D work must be fitted with picture wire for hanging

-All work must be labelled on the reverse with artist name and title only (please do not include the price of the work on the label)
