Cromer Artspace on the Prom

Artspace on the Prom is closed for the winter. If you would like to help keep the space open all year round, please donate to our appeal so we can install heating and gallery lighting.

In our 2 seasons (2022 and 23) there were an amazing range of over 30 exhibitions and a research project residency, welcoming over 25,000 people. The 2024 season is in place, starting at the end of March; full details on the exhibition page.

Artists who would like to exhibit in the gallery should read our details on how to apply

Cromer Artspace research

Research Project

In 2020 Cromer Artspace commissioned a research project which investigated how other towns have developed high quality, innovative and contemporary public art – opening opportunities on a world scale for participation and understanding.

Interviews were undertaken with interested locals, arts professionals, innovators and grant giving bodies. The resultant report has enabled us to plan and formulate ideas for future possibilities which would be suitable for Cromer.

Cromer Lockdown Views

Cromer Lockdown Views Project

Cromer Artspace offered an opportunity for all-comers to be creative and to use Lockdown Isolation as subject matter. More than 40 people took part, from professional artists to total beginners and the project grew to become an online gallery of paintings, photographs, 3D works, films and poetry. A further 16 moving and energetic entries came from school groups, all reflecting the mood of Cromer during Covid19.

Two A3 sized posters were produced, and each entrant received copies. More were posted around town and are on sale through our website
