EAAF is also committed to supporting the local artistic community. We do this by giving grants to exhibitions, creating art education opportunities, bringing our members and artists together through events and studio visits and organising selling shows.

EAAF is keen to create opportunities for local artists to show and sell their work. Every few years we organise an Open Art Show at Norwich Castle which generates income for both the artists and ourselves via commissions and submission fees. In 2018 the Open Art Show Inheritance was organised alongside The Square Box on the Hill, an exhibition celebrating the 900 year history of Norwich Castle.

In 2021 we are delighted to support the 6th Norwich Castle Open Art Show, Somewhere Unexpected. The exhibition features new work by 38 artists based in the region - revealing their relationships to their immediate landscapes in the shifting context of a global pandemic. Somewhere Unexpected is on show in the Timothy Gurney Gallery at Norwich Castle as part of the bicentenary celebrations marking the death of John Crome, a founder of the Norwich School of Artists. The exhibition was selected by Amanda Geitner, Rosy Gray, Henry Jackson Newcomb and Danny Keen.

Take a look at the work of some of our artist members. If you are an artist, EAAF membership entitles you to feature your work here.
