How do you apply?

Download either the solo or group show application forms and return via email to our Gallery Administrator, Heather Guthrie, at gallery@anterosfoundation.com, or by post: Anteros Arts Foundation 7-15 Fye Bridge St, Norwich, NR3 1LJ
 

Please include as much detail as possible in the application including images. 

 

The Anteros Arts Foundation does not intend for the cost of hire to present a barrier to exhibitors. If the cost of hire cannot be met, we ask exhibitors to still complete an application form and we will do our best to include and support your exhibition where possible.

It is a fundamental principle of all Anteros Arts Foundation policies that all people are equally valued regardless of their race, colour, nationality, ethnic origin, national origin, religion, belief, gender, marital/civil partner status, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, age, disability, trade union membership and part/fixed-term employment status.  It would therefore assist us greatly in monitoring our application process if you would also complete an equal opportunities monitoring form and return this separately to gallery@anterosfoundation.com

What is the selection process?

Applications are assessed by the Anteros Curatorial Committee who meet every two to three months. The committee will be considering the following questions:

  • Will the artist or artworks bring new audiences to Anteros?

  • Will the artist or artworks appeal to our current audiences? 

  • Could an educational experience be delivered alongside this show? 

  • (examples: practical workshop, lecture, written guide/trail, meet the artist)

  • What effect will this show have on Anteros’ reputation?

  • Will the artwork sell?

Successful applicants will be offered a two-week or one month exhibition at a time suggested by the committee. Dates are likely to be offered to coincide with, or to avoid clashes with, other events and activities going on at Anteros or in Norwich at that time. 

 

If you have a strong preference as to when you would like your exhibition to take place please mention this in your application and your wishes will be taken into account.
