Emerge at The Undercroft is a new art show which aims to highlight the brightest contemporary art talent in and around Norfolk. It is organised by working artists, to bring together those who are on their way up in an accessible and fun display in the heart of Norwich.

Along with invited exhibitors, it will include an Open Call Wall designed to provide early career artists with a chance to get their work in front of an audience.

We encourage people from all backgrounds to apply - don't worry, you don’t need qualifications or to have displayed your work previously! We are open to all styles and mediums and will consider both 2D and 3D work. We don’t want cost to be an obstacle so there is no upfront fee. Selected artists will be invited to pay what they can afford towards running costs.

Terms and conditions

 Submissions close on September 30th and artists will be notified by October 22. Selected artworks must be delivered to The Undercroft, Norwich, on November 21. Full details will be sent to selected contributors.

All artworks must be framed (unless unframed for aesthetic reasons) and ready to hang, with fixings. Artists are responsible for arranging their own insurance and while every effort will be made, the organisers accept no responsibility for damage or loss. We reserve the right to decline submissions on delivery. In the unlikely event a piece is declined at this point, any payment will be refunded.

Selected artists will be invited to make a £20 contribution for their first work and £10 for any further selected works. This is voluntary and we will not be charging commission. A card transaction fee of approximately 1.7% will be deducted from any purchases.

 The show will run from November 22st to November 26th. There is no requirement to be present during the show but everyone is of course welcome to attend as often as they like - indeed we would encourage this! There will be a private view on November 22nd. Once selection is complete, we will be in touch with further details.
