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 members, and thereafter can apply for permanent membership.

All artwork will be 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 installation art. Work may be representational or abstract, narrative or conceptual – we are looking for professional artists whose work will enhance the high standard of artwork we showcase in our annual exhibition.

To apply, download and print out the Artworks Application Form [PDF, 849kb] and Information for Applicants [PDF, 84kb], returning your completed form by post to the address on the form by 31st January 2017. After you have submitted a completed application form, you will be invited to present a portfolio of recent work in early February (date to be advised). All artists’ applications are judged on the portfolio of work on selection day, there is no shortlisting or pre-selection. Do not send photographs or CDs with your initial application form. For further enquiries about joining Artworks, please contact Ruth McCabe, our membership secretary:
