An open art exhibition at Woodhorn Museum exploring the theme of trees, woodlands and forests: past, present and future.

  • Artists may submit up to three works for consideration at a fee of £10 per work (non-refundable).
  • Please e-mail wow@museumsnorthumberland.org.uk to register interest and to receive an entry form.
  • Artists must be able to deliver works for consideration to Woodhorn Museum on Saturday 26th January 2019 between the hours of 11am and 3pm. Works must be accompanied by a completed entry form and a signed copy of our terms and condition. Full payment will be taken upon delivery by cash, card or cheque.
  • Further details about the exhibition and our T&C’s can be found at the bottom of this page.

We are thrilled to announce that Esen Kaya and Narbi Price have agreed to be judges along with Liz Ritson, Learning and Programme Manager at Museums Northumberland.

Esen Kaya is a visual artist, educator and curator of Pakistani origin working across drawing, installation, new media and sculpture. She started her career as Education Officer at Newlyn Art Gallery, where she developed a passion for creating ambitious community-focused creative arts projects for people of all ages and abilities. During her nine years at The Customs House, she curated over 130 exhibitions of work by regional, national and international artists; bringing the very best of contemporary practice to North East audiences. Esen is currently curator of Drawing NE, an ambitious, multi-partnership programme celebrating the role of drawing in art and culture and the everyday. She believes that creativity should be embedded into education and everyday learning and that art should be seen as a tool for research, education and social change.

Narbi Price is the Journal Culture Awards Visual Artist of the Year 2018, and the winner of the Contemporary British Painting Prize 2017. He is a trustee of the Ashington Group (Pitmen Painters) collection and is currently completing his PhD at Newcastle University.

The exhibition forms part of our ‘Coal Forest’ season, which will see the Woodhorn Museum site transformed through a series of magical and thought-provoking art installations in our colliery heritage buildings. Coal Forest will be complemented by an exciting event programme that shifts with the seasons through Autumn, Winter and Spring.
