Contemporary Artist Commission, East Riding Visual Arts Uplift (East Riding of Yorkshire Council)


Following the initial commissions of artists Ian Kirkpatrick and Juliette Losq, the East Riding Visual Arts Uplift is proud to announce yet another contemporary artistic commission this time in collaboration with Sewerby Hall and Gardens for 2021/2022

There is an all inclusive commission fee of £8,000 available to the shortlisted artist to create a piece of contemporary artwork that is site specific and fits the stated artistic brief.

The work proposed and produced must be contemporary art, that is both challenging and of a high quality. We want artists to add their own style, create something that showcases what they do as an artist to intrigue the audience and bring a taste of contemporary visual art to the East Riding.

It is envisaged the piece will be installed within Sewerby Hall in November for an agreed duration of potentially several months with scope for an accompanying workshop/talk from the artist.

This commission is a part of the East Riding Visual Arts Uplift’s commitment to showcasing and integrating contemporary art into the region.

The closing date for applications is Friday 18th June 2021, please email Lauren at for an application form.

Please share this with anyone who you think may be interested!
