Artists needed for our opening exhibition

CONNECTION:OPEN 2018 exhibition to celebrate the best East Anglian art

Be part of our opening exhibition from June 2018.

Artists with an East Anglian connection are invited to submit works for the exciting launch exhibition in our new art space.

CONNECTION: OPEN 2018 will bring together the best artists from across the East Anglian region to showcase the new art space within the refurbished Maltings buildings on Staithe Street, Wells-next-the-Sea, and to form an important part of its opening season.

Featuring 2-dimensional work in all mediums CONNECTION: OPEN 2018 not only offers a unique opportunity for artists to show their work, but will also give visitors to chance to view and purchase work by artists at every level of their career, from new talent to established figures, in the centre’s stunning new art space.

CONNECTION: OPEN 2018 is co-curated by Catherine Mason, who will work with and and advise the Maltings team in staging the exhibition and selecting final works to go on show.

Wells Maltings director Simon Daykin says, “Our opening exhibition will combine the things we hold dear to us. Firstly, we aim to showcase the very best in visual arts from exciting and inspirational artists. Secondly, the focus on East Anglian themes reflects our own sense of place, and how we bring our local connections into our building. And last – but certainly not least – it’s an open call – anyone can take part and submit work. The Maltings – like art – is for everyone.”

Artists have until 30 April 2018 to submit work for consideration.
