Artist Submission

Darl-e and the Bear is a flourishing contemporary art gallery, located in the heart of Woodstock, near Oxford.

We have an eclectic approach to our gallery and its collections. We take the time to curate our whole gallery spaces to promote quality craftsmanship and individuality from artists, makers and designers working with integrity and imagination within the disciplines of contemporary art, craft and design.

Our Bear Den Open Call is now closed to submissions for this year, however, if you would like to submit your work for consideration to show your work in our gallery as part of other projects then please feel free to submit your work or by filling out an application via the link below.

We have recently opened an Art Lounge, The Bear Den, which gives art lovers a chance to sit amongst a selection of some of the most exciting contemporary art being produced. We have an amazing footfall each week, which is only growing and soon to expand.

Twice a year we will be looking to turn the whole Art Lounge into an installation, so if you feel your work would benefit from using this space please also apply via the link. ( Financial help may be available for the right proposal ).
