Summer Exhibition in Retrospect

With work submitted by 68 artists, the curators, Maxine Byron, June Cunningham and Val Philpot were given the arduous task of putting together The West Norfolk Artists Association Summer Exhibition, the largest exhibition hosted by the association, held at St. Nicholas Chapel and shown in conjunction with the Kings Lynn Festival. From the positive visitor’s feedback, we congratulate the curators on a job well done.  (photos by Lydia Haines and David Ashfield)

The Red List by Jane Ivimey

The Red List
Jane Ivimey

Immediately on entering the gallery one sees the poignantly powerful Jane Ivimey piece after which the exhibition is named.  Seventy white bisque fired stoneware birds are laid on a large black surface. Their neatly folded feet, clawed or webbed, tidy their mute forms into a graded repetition and one foot holds the identity tag. Their wings are neatly folded; out of use. Some identification is restored, most movingly, by the different positions and sizes of the birds’ heads, necks and beaks, the white corpses. ‘Red-backed Shrike’, ‘Yellow Wagtail’, ‘Roseate Tern’. This is The Red List. All are endangered, all avian inhabitants of and migrants to Britain. Ivimey’s work is at once a poetic tribute to their beauty and a shocking reminder of our real and pending loss of them.
