Celebrating the best East Anglian art to launch Wells Maltings Art Space
CONNECTION : OPEN 2018 will bring together the best artists with an affinity to the East Anglian Region to showcase the new art space within the landmark Maltings buildings on Staithe Street, Wells-next-the-Sea. Featuring 2-dimensional work in all mediums
CONNECTION : OPEN 2018 offers a unique opportunity to view and purchase work by artists at every level of
their career, from emerging talent to established figures. Works will be for sale, with the Maltings taking a
20% commission. A programme of activities, workshops and demonstrations will be run alongside the
exhibition, for which there is an opportunity for artists to get involved and interact with the public.
Taking our inspiration from the annual Royal Academy Summer Show, we encourage varied 2D work in
painting, drawing, print making, mixed-media, wall-mounted textiles and there will be an anonymous
selection procedure. All work selected on its own merits!
Don’t miss being a part of this wonderful NEW opportunity in this landmark centre. Submit your work now!
