Viewable all day during Bowes Museum opening hours

Once again the visual arts charity New Light is delighted to launch its latest New Light Prize Exhibition at The Bowes Museum. Established in 2010, it celebrates and promotes Northern art, supporting both well-known and emerging artists by offering some of the region’s best awards and opportunities through its biennial Prize Exhibition, including, amongst others, the £10,000 Valeria Sykes Award.

New Light unashamedly champions the, sometimes unfashionable, skills and crafts behind painting, drawing and printmaking, be it representational or the purely abstract. In this year’s exhibition they have brought together some of the best contemporary Northern artists working today and are proud to celebrate them here at The Bowes Museum – the North’s Museum of Art, Fashion and Design.

In a bid to make contemporary art more accessible New Light – Art for All is an education programme which includes talks, workshops and school projects that will run during the exhibition.

The common thread through all it does is a deep belief that art matters and the North of England – and its artistic talent – deserves to be recognised.
