Artworks welcomes new applications from professional artists based in East Anglia (Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire), producing contemporary artwork in any medium. For the first year, artists joining Artworks are temporary guest members, and thereafter can apply for permanent (full) membership. All artists’ 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, but not exclusively: painting and drawing (oil, acrylic, watercolour, collage, mixed media), original printmaking (such as etching, lithography, woodcut), sculpture and 3D (including stone, bronze, glass, ceramics, metalwork), photography, animation, video and multi-media. Work may be representational or abstract, narrative or conceptual – we are looking for professional artists whose artwork will enhance the high standard of artworks we showcase in our annual exhibition.
