Submissions close 31 October for major East of England international art fair  

The deadline for submissions to Art Fair East, which runs from 2nd to 4th December in St Andrews Hall, is rapidly approaching. The fair is one of the Eastern region’s largest and liveliest contemporary visual arts events, of a type rarely seen outside London. It brings together artists, galleries and dealers from the UK and overseas, including a large contingent of talented artists from across the east of England.

Scores of artists and galleries have already made submissions including international dealers and galleries who will be exhibiting work from artists from around the UK including dealers in editions by world famous artists such as Damien Hirst and Banksy. The Eastern Art Fair will give artists from our region the opportunity to be seen alongside these household names.

The Eastern Art Fair is organised by Norfolk based art professionals Will Teather and Brian Korteling. Will said ‘We have already had a fantastic range of submissions of high quality contemporary art, from across the UK and overseas but we want to make our selection process as tough for ourselves as possible! We are especially keen hear from more artists based in the Eastern region. Art Fair East aims to showcase the best the art-world has to offer to a wide audience of collectors, art professionals and the general public.’
