Call for Entries
Norwich Castle Open Art Show 2018 offers artists living in East Anglia the opportunity to show and sell recent work, addressing the theme of Inheritance.
We live with a grand inheritance of architecture and landscape. Many of us treasure objects of personal inheritance that allow memory to endure, making tangible a connection with our ancestry. Less tangibly, we inherit traits, habits and traditions that are important elements of the way we live now.
Inheritance will be shown alongside The Square Box on the Hill, a major exhibition illustrating the history of Norwich Castle Keep and the ambitions for the HLF-funded Norwich Castle: Gateway to Medieval England project.
Entries cost £10 per work
Submissions close 30 September 2017
The selection will be made in November 2017 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.
Artists will be informed of the final selection by the end of December 2017 and works will be on display in Norwich Castle 3 March – 20 May 2018.
Inheritance is proudly supported by Brown&Co, who will be awarding a cash prize of £1000 to one of the selected artists.
