artEast was set up by Georgina Barclay & Henny Palmer-Tomkinson

Exciting & engaging exhibitions in East Anglia which we hope will be enjoyed as much by those attending as by the artists themselves.  artEast exhibits a variety of established artists from all over the world alongside local artists.  We aim to support a different art school at each exhibition and hang a body of student work alongside the established professionals.


Henny Palmer-Tomkinson worked at contemporary London art gallery, Jonathan Cooper, for 10 years, curating exhibitions at the gallery and at major art fairs. Henny has also hosted exhibitions in London and Essex in partnership with The Redfern Gallery, London.

Georgina Barclay is a classically trained artist and has been painting portraits professionally since 2001. Her work has been shown at the Royal Society of Portrait Painters at the Mall Gallery and she has had various solo exhibitions in London and further afield.  She has completed portrait commissions all over the UK and Europe, including HRH The Prince of Wales and HRH The Queen in her jubilee year. She will of course be exhibiting at artEast exhibitions.
