The object of the IEA is to advance the practice, appreciation and general understanding of the art of painting in any medium as practised by artists who are resident in the area of East Anglia.  It represents both established and up-and-coming artists who live in that area and includes amongst its member’s artists who are also members of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters and other national societies.
