Open Exhibition 2021

15th May 2021 - 25th May 2021

Call For Entries NOW OPEN 

This year artists can now submit up to six pieces of work at a fee of £10 per entry, for consideration by the Selection Panel.


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.

* Note – subject to national restrictions

All dates/times are subject to change due to the national restrictions currently in place. Please check back regularly for updates.

If the exhibition cannot be held physically in May it will be shown online and the possibility of a new exhibition date may be rescheduled at the discretion of The Gallery.

Therefore, all accepted submissions will remain recorded and in “waiting” for 2021 until a physical exhibition can take place. If you wish to have any selected works removed from “waiting” during this time you will need to advise us.

No further submissions for 2021 will be accepted after the final submission date.
