This year features 38 emerging artists who are studying in or living in any part of Yorkshire showcasing painting, sculpture, and film among others. 

The showcase explores themes such as politics, the environment, social issues, and sexuality as well as the increase of ostrich farming in South Yorkshire. 

Previous artists to feature on the exhibition have gone on to exhibit or work at the gallery, including current gallery employees Sonia Moran and Millie Rothera.

Creative Director, Jane Kay said of the Yorkshire talent: “There are 38 artists involved this year, selected from a record number of nearly 200 applications, and the standard is very high indeed.

“For the past three years we have invited professional curators and arts practitioners to help us select the exhibiting artists from the applications received on Curator Space. This helps provide a balanced choice, gives the students exposure to creative professionals outside Sunny Bank Mills and broadens the experience of our own curatorial team.”
