A Thriving Art Community in Dersingham

Gruinard Bay Scotland
by Jo Halpin Jones

The Dersingham Art Trail has grown to include fourteen members, who are putting the final touches to work for their seventh pre-Christmas event. Nine studios will open to display the work of Jill Illett (paintings); Liz Stockley, Carole Brookfield, Neil Adams and Patrick Preston (paintings); Stephen Martyn (paintings); Marty Griffin (paintings) and Trudi Griffin (cards); Val Anckorn (paintings and candles); Julia Quance (paintings); June Mullarkey (pottery) and Ben Mullarkey (paintings); and Jo Halpin Jones (photography and digital restoration) and Janet Martin (creates artworks with fused glass).

The studios will be open on Saturday and Sunday November 25th and 26th, from 10am to 4pm. Entry is free. You will receive a warm welcome to come and browse, to meet the artists, to see new work and some old favourites. It is also an opportunity to buy original work, prints and delightful greetings cards. If you have old photographs that need restoring, take them along to Jo Halpin Jones’ studio.

Maps of the studio locations can be obtained from Dersingham Pottery, 46 Chapel Road, or from www.DersinghamArtTrail.org, where there are also details of all the artists.
