About Anteros Arts Foundation
The Anteros Arts Foundation is a charity for education and the promotion of the arts in Norfolk. We teach short courses in fine art skills
alongside the eight-month Anteros Arts Diploma . Our art reference library is available to students as well
as the general public and contains shelves of how-to books as well as catalogues of collections and artists.
We have two gallery spaces, each with a different exhibition at any one time. The exhibitions change every two weeks,
so there is always something new to see. Upstairs in the music room, we have a busy programme of music featuring
artists from the UK and abroad who vary in style from Classical Piano to Jazz and Folk.
On the third floor of the building, there are artists’ studios, which are usually open and welcoming to visitors.
The Anteros Arts Foundation is entirely self funded: no Arts Council funding, no European money; just a small team of
dedicated people trying to make a home for the arts on Magdalen Street. We are very lucky and grateful to have the headlease
for an amazing building (formerly a Tudor mansion house) which the charity utilises to generate an income through a trading subsidiary
by renting the cafe space to North, renting the gallery spaces to artists and selling artwork as well as room hires.
In Greek mythology, Anteros (Ancient Greek: Ἀντέρως Antérōs) - the brother of Eros, was the god of requited love, literally "love returned" or "counter-love"
