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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
As we bask in the sunshine of high summer, the Swinton Estate and Yorkshire Dales provide a heavenly venue for walking, cycling and riding. Closer to home, the Walled Garden is brimming over with soft fruit and young vegetables, providing delicious ingredients for our Garden Lunches and Estate Produce Lunches.
The darkening leaves on the turret remind us that Autumn is coming, but also herald the coming of game, wild mushrooms and other seasonal treats.
