The Swinton Foundation and New Light
The Swinton Foundation is a charitable trust that supports artists, entrepreneurs and communities in the Yorkshire Dales and surrounding area, helping regenerate the rural landscape and with the Swinton Estate providing a base as a catalyst for further enterprise and development.
Current initiatives include supporting New Light , a charity formed in 2010 to promote and support emerging contemporary artists in the North of England.
The Swinton Foundation supports New Light with the Swinton Foundation Prize, giving the winner their own exhibition at Swinton Park in the new bar exhibition gallery space. This year’s winner is Anna Poulton from Ripon. Details of all winners are in the press release attached here:
A fundraising exhibition showcasing some of the North’s most respected and contemporary artists takes place at Swinton Park each summer. Arranged by New Lights, the exhibition features works on display and for sale by artists competing for their annual prizes. See New Light Prize Exhibition for details of the artists participating this year.
For invitations to the Private View at Swinton Park, usually in June each year, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
