My name is Harry Fowler and I am currently working as an Events Intern with Norwich Castle Museum.

At present we are calling for entries across Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, and Essex for an Open Art show commencing in February 2018. This is a fantastic opportunity for artists local to these areas to submit and have their work displayed (and on sale) at one of East Anglia’s premier arts and heritage venues.

Submission cost £10 per piece with an individual being able to submit up to 3 pieces and entries close on the 30/09/2017.

Please contact Harry Fowler, Events Intern Norwich Castle Museum:

Call for entries! Norwich Castle Open Art Show 2018 offers artists living in East Anglia the opportunity to show and sell recent work, addressing the theme of Inheritance.  

We live with a grand inheritance of architecture and landscape. Many  of us treasure objects of personal  inheritance that allow memory to  endure, making tangible a connection with our ancestry. Less tangibly,  we inherit traits, habits and traditions that are important elements of the  way we live now.

Inheritance will be shown alongside  The Square Box on the Hill, a major  exhibition illustrating the history of  Norwich Castle Keep and the ambitions  for the HLF-funded Norwich Castle: Gateway to Medieval England project.

Artists who are resident in Norfolk,  Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire  are invited to submit up to 3 works  via the East Anglia Art Fund website: Entries cost £10 per work  Submissions close 30 September 2017

The selection will be made in  November 2017 by a panel of invited judges: Penelope Hughes-Stanton,  Director of North House Gallery,  Manningtree; Sandy Heslop, Professor of Visual Arts, University of East Anglia; Lloyd De Beer, The Ferguson Curator  of Medieval Europe, The British Museum.

Artists will be informed of the final  selection by the end of December 2017 and works will be on display in Norwich Castle 3 March – 20 May 2018.
