Interview with Esther Boehm
THIS YEAR WE FELT VERY PRIVILEGED TO HAVE VERONICA SEKULES OF GROUNDWORK GALLERY SELECT THE BEST IN SHOW (SYD DAVISON CUP) AT THE SUMMER EXHIBITION. SHE CHOSE YOUR WORK. HOW DID THAT MAKE YOU FEEL?
I was very surprised and it felt great to have my work chosen. It had been quite a struggle to get the pieces finished as I had a few false starts with the resin work. The precision needed with the technical side was at odds with the energy I wanted to portray in the work. The prize felt like a reward for my persistence!
When Annie and I set off to Paradise Island the sky was threatening. We had planned our trip to coincide with low tide. The Bounty Bars were packed, we were wearing our waterproof trousers and nothing was going to stop us.
We would like to invite you to –
BIZARRE BAZAAR 2-16 December 2017

A wonderful opportunity to buy unique gifts, cards and artwork produced by seventeen, talented, local artists
Starting on Wednesday 6th December and running through the month during resturant opening hours, Emily Chapman will be the featured artist at the recently opened Kings Lynn Soul Café.
Member Alison D’Oyley has a forthcoming exhibition ‘Drawn by Nature’ to include drawings, watercolours and original limited edition silkscreen and linocut prints. Alison’s work is inspired by nature’s networks and grids, for example insect wings or winter trees, and also reflections and shadows – beautiful but ephemeral.
The Autumn Exhibition presented 62 works by members of the West Norfolk Artists Association. Thank you to curators Michele Summers and Neil Leggett for putting it all together in such a pleasing way.

In mid-September I visited The Hague; the purpose of my visit “Discovering Mondrian” an exhibition at the Gemeentmuseum in the city. The Gemeentemuseum houses and owns the largest and best collection of Mondrian’s’ in the world.
As a devotee of Mondrian’s oeuvre and a fascination in his unique journey from being a very competent landscape painter to the very modern abstract art for which he is better known today.
Greyfriars Art Space first began in February 2008, when Jill North, with a group of B.A. Fine Art students, based at the College of West Anglia, decided that there was no affordable space in Kings Lynn for emerging young artists to show their work. Jill was able to purchase the property at 43 St James Street, and together with friends transformed it into the attractive small gallery we know today.
