Annual Open Exhibition







The Institute of East Anglian Artists Open Exhibition is held annually at The Gallery Holt, North Norfolk, and open for submissions by any artist within East Anglia*.

The upcoming 2021 exhibition will be held for the first time in Spring, opening to the public Saturday 15 May until Tuesday 25 May. All selection stages for this exhibition will be held online, thus reducing potential long journeys for some artists.

The IEA represents the best emerging and established artists in the region (*for these purposes we’ve interpreted the area quite generously, so please refer to the IEA region map). The route to IEA membership is via successful submission to the Open Exhibition on this and subsequent years. Standards are high so start preparing your best work!

We are proud to have a long-standing relationship with The Gallery Holt, whose recently refurbished contemporary gallery has also hosted exhibitions of work by ROI and RI members. We look forward once again to holding our 2021 exhibition there.

Submissions will open soon and full details (and Terms & Conditions) will be published shortly, please check back.
