Artist Opportunities

Brewers Towner Commission

We are inviting proposals from artists and designers for an art commission that will transform the exterior of the gallery building with an exceptional wall painting as part of a year-long programme celebrating ten years in the Towner building. The Brewers Towner Commission is a painted commission that will encompass all white rendered facades around the front, side and back of the building. This exciting public artwork will be made possible with the support of Brewers Decorator Centres, with the company aiming to spark conversation and support artistic practice in Eastbourne, where the company is based, and beyond.

Application deadline: Sunday 30 December

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 for consideration. 

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.

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.
