East GalleryNUA and Norwich University of the Arts is delighted to continue its long-standing venue partnership with Jerwood Charitable Foundation and to support the development of creative talent by showcasing the outcome of these Fellowships. Jerwood Painting Fellowships 2016 presents new works by three outstanding early career painters. Francesca Blomfield, Archie Franks and Dale Lewis. The trio were selected from over 400 applicants to undertake a year-long mentoring programme supported by three eminent UK-based painters: Phoebe Unwin, Jane Harris and Dan Coombs. Each Fellow also received a £10,000 bursary to support the development of their work, their practice and ideas.
