Artist opportunities

Towner offers local artists from East Sussex a variety of opportunities to exhibit and sell their work, such as East Sussex Open and the Cafe Project. We also support artist network Blue Monkey Network.

East Sussex Open 2016
Our annual open exhibition showcases the exceptional breadth and variety of artistic talent throughout the East Sussex region. The East Sussex Open 2016 will be shown from 23 July – 25 September 2016. The deadline for entries is 20 March 2016.

See the East Sussex Open page for more information.

Blue Monkey Network
Towner is pleased to be a partner in Blue Monkey Network, an artist network, run by artists for artists.  Blue Monkey Network aims to provide opportunities for professional and creative development for East Sussex artists.

Café Projects
Artists based in the Sussex region can apply for a Café Project: a selling exhibition of 4-8 works displayed in our café. Please email your CV and up to 8 small jpegs (not more than 2MB in total) to alison.bettles@townereastbourne.org.uk for consideration.

Unsolicited proposals
Towner’s exhibitions and events are programmed up to three years in advance on the invitation of the Director and Senior Management Team who work closely with artists to develop and realise the production of exhibitions and events. For this reason, we do not accept unsolicited proposals and cannot cover costs to return proposals if they are submitted.
