Artist Opportunities

Brewers Towner Commission

Launching in May 2019, the Brewers Towner Commission is a temporary painted commission that will encompass all white rendered facades around the front, side and back of the building, made possible with the support of Brewers Decorator Centres

Eastbourne Arts Circle 2019 Sculptural Commission

With the support of Eastbourne Arts Circle, we are looking to commission a Sussex artist or maker to create an original 3D artwork to be displayed in the gallery’s iconic front window, marking ten years in our purpose-built gallery. Application via our online form on this page.

Sussex Open

Following feedback from artists and visitors we have taken the decision to pause our annual Sussex Open exhibition for 2019. We will use this break to review the Open and ensure that we are offering the best opportunity for artists based in the region to exhibit work at Towner.

To be kept up to date with our plans, and to hear about other artist opportunities, please sign up for our artist opportunities mailing list here.

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.
