The Swinton Foundation
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 Lights , a charity formed in 2010 to promote and support emerging contemporary artists in the North of England.
A fundraising exhibition showcasing some of the North’s most respected and contemporary artists will take place at Swinton Park from 18th June to 18th July 2014 (open daily, free of charge, excl. 21st June). Arranged by New Lights, the exhibition features works on display and for sale by artists including Hester Cox, Mark Demsteader, Debbie Loane, Emerson Mayes and Chloe Holt.
For invitations to the Private View event with wine and canapés on Thursday 16th June, 6.30pm – 9pm, please contact email@example.com Tickets £10, funds raised to New Lights.
The Swinton Foundation is supporting New Lights with the Swinton Foundation Prize, giving the winner their own exhibition at Swinton Park in the new bar exhibition gallery space.
There is a definite crispness in the air now, heralding the arrival of game, wild mushrooms and other Autumnal treats. While the weather is still perfect for walking, cycling and riding it’s also a great time to enjoy replenishing Spa treats and tempting gourmet indulgences, such as our Estate Lunch Menu – currently featuring grouse – or our inspiring range of seasonal cookery courses.
