Sussex Open 2018 + Sussex Open Commission Award

Towner’s Sussex Open exhibition brings together the best artists from across East and West Sussex, offering a unique opportunity to view works by artists at every level of their career, from new talent to established figures.

Artists who have previously exhibited work in our Open exhibition have gone on to be selected for John Moore’s Painting Prize, the Jerwood Drawing Prize, the BFI Film Festival in the experimental film category and have been shortlisted for the Mark Tanner Sculpture Prize.

Sussex Open Commission Award

This year we’re introducing a new initiative alongside our annual Sussex Open. The Sussex Open Commission Award has been kindly sponsored by Eastbourne Arts Circle and aims to support the creating of a new artwork. This award is open across a wide range of forms including (but not limited to) film, painting, photography, sculpture and installation.

The selected proposal will receive an award of up to £1000 to develop their project which will then be presented as part of the Sussex Open exhibition.

Please submit your application for the Sussex Open Commission Award by Monday, 30 April.
