East Contemporary Art: A collection of 21st Century Practice

I was very excited to be apart of the East Contemporary Art Collection, which is currently on display at the Water Front Gallery, University Campus Suffolk

The collection is the initiative of Robert Priseman and Simon Carter who set out to create a new contemporary art collection, distinct from the historic collections yet complimentary to them. Through their commitment and vision, and the generosity of the artists from the East of England who have donated works, they have created a collection that showcases the vast range of artistic talent and excellence within the region.

Robert Prisemans says,

“The East Contemporary Art Collection is home to some of the very best contemporary art held in East Anglia. It provides a gateway for anyone who wishes to see some of the finest examples of work by artists of national and international importance living and working in the East of England today.”

This is a permanent collection that captures the diversity of practice in the region and re – affirms the importance of artists’ work to our creative journey.

The collection contains art from a wide range of media which will be exhibited in the Waterfront Gallery over a series of exhibitions.

27th November 2013 – 15th January 2014, Water Front Art Gallery, Monday – Friday 9 am – 6pm
