Creative Darlington are seeking images of work from visual artists to be installed in and around the Crown Street Gallery, Darlington. We are looking for contemporary, visually captivating images which will demonstrate the creative brilliance of the creative communities in and around Darlington.

Please note - Submitted artworks can be pre-existing works. We do not see this as a commission for the creation of new work.

4 artists works will be selected. Successful artists will receive £150. Their work will be printed and shown as part of an external site specific showcase around the Crown Street Gallery in Darlington. Works should be suitable for reproduction in print. If works are photographs / scans of originals, then these should be high quality and of a professional standard.

The final artworks will form a collection of banners and window vinyl, which animate the exterior of Crown Street Gallery, sparking people’s curiosity and highlighting the creativity in the region.

Successful artists will also be profiled through the Creative Darlington website and marketing material.

Artists can submit up to 3 works. Applications should be made through Curator Space and will require the following

  • a brief artist statement
  • a short paragraph describing the submitted work(s) (200words max per artwork)
  • works should be submitted as a jpeg image.

Creative Darlington are interested in showcasing creative talent from in and around Darlington and the wider Tees Valley.
