The Biscuit Factory Call for Submissions


Call for Submissions
The Biscuit Factory

Newcastle upon Tyne, UK

The Biscuit Factory is the UK’s largest art, craft & design gallery set in the heart of Newcastle’s cultural quarter. Housed in a former Victorian warehouse, the beautiful and dynamic gallery spaces are set over two floors, display a range of exciting contemporary fine art, sculpture, original prints and jewellery, quality craftsmanship and design led home-wares. The Biscuit Factory hosts four major exhibitions a year, changing on a quarterly basis and representing the work of around 250 artists each season.

We are always happy to consider new artists both locally and nationally. Should you wish to exhibit please follow these steps:

  1. Submit no more than 10 images of your work by email. Along with this please include a biography/ artist statement containing information on the work and yourself, and also an indication of the dimensions and retail price for each piece submitted. To submit images (photographs or jpegs on cd), by post, please provide a SAE to ensure the return of your images. Please feel free to also include a link to your website if appropriate.
  2. You will be sent an automated acknowledgement that we have received your email submission.
  3. Your submission will then be considered by a board of staff members. We have a team of curators who specialise in different media. Due to the number of applications this may take around 12 weeks so please be patient. You will hear back from us even if you have not been successful.
  4. If your work is selected for exhibition we will liaise with you regarding a date to exhibit in the gallery.
  5. If your work is not selected for exhibition we will be in touch to let you know this but regret that we will be unable to provide detail or enter any further discussion as to the team's decision.
