ARTWORKS welcome new applications from professional artists based in East Anglia (Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire), producing contemporary artwork in any media.

For the first year, artists joining Artworks are guest members, and thereafter can apply for permanent membership. Applications are judged on the portfolio of work on selection day, there is no shortlisting or pre-selection. There is no fee to apply.

All contemporary artwork is considered, including: painting and drawing (oil, acrylic, watercolour, collage, mixed media); original fine art printmaking (etching, lithography, woodcut, silkscreen, collagraphy), sculpture and 3D work, including stone, bronze, glass, ceramics, metalwork and mixed media. Work may be representational or abstract, narrative or conceptual – we are looking for professional artists whose artwork will enhance the diversity of contemporary art in our annual exhibition.
