Friends of the IEA

We have formed this Group to create a link between the Institute and people who share our aim of supporting artists living in the East Anglian region and encouraging interest in the arts generally.

In exchange for contributing moderate financial support for the IEA, as a Friend, you will receive our Friends Newsletter telling you about our events and what our members – most of whom are professional artists – are doing, as well as receiving personal invitations to attend the Private Views for our Annual Open Exhibition and our Members’ Exhibitions.

In addition, Friends will be given priority in signing up for the Workshops and other events run by the IEA throughout the year. The workshops, in particular, are always limited by the number and often over-subscribed.

It is the policy of the IEA to develop further benefits for Friends as time goes by – with suggestions always being welcome.

The current membership fee for becoming a Friend will be £20 per year, renewable either by auto subscription or annual invoice.

To join and make your first payment, please complete the form below and make your subscription via the Paypal button.

And if you have friends who are similarly interested in the arts, why not pass this message on to them too.

We look forward to hearing from you.
