Welcome back to the Castle!

EAAF is also committed to supporting the local artistic community. We do this by supporting 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.

Inheritance was selected 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. From a record-breaking 895 submissions they selected a remarkable exhibition of 129 works. We plan to hold another Norwich Castle Open Art Show in 2021.

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.
