Young Gallery logo

The Young Gallery is home to two trusts, The Edwin Young Trust and John Creasey Museum Trust which together comprise seven art collections displayed across three gallery spaces.

Building on the success of the recent preSense project, funded by the Arts Council, the Young Gallery’s aim is to continue developing audiences and raise awareness of the gallery through a programme of new exhibitions and innovative participatory arts programmes inspired by the art collections.

The Young Gallery in 2014 was awarded a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Art Fund to purchase a John Piper landscape drawing titled ‘Maen Bras’ (Big Stone and Rain) for the permanent collection. Using this as inspiration, we want to explore the theme of landscape and continue to build on working with target communities and, for this project titled BigStone&Rain, specifically with the military and young carers.

The artist brief can be downloaded below and the deadline for applications is 12 noon on Friday 20 March 2015.
