Ely Cathedral

War to End all Wars Exhibition

100 banners in black, red and white on cotton and hessian form an installation at Ely Cathedral throughout February. Some are painted, others appliquéd, printed or embroidered. The banners hang from a four sided bamboo constructed platform on 3 levels in an airy cascade. Of the 17 artists who are members of Ouse Life Cambridgeshire, WNAA artist Ann Froshaug painted 7 of the 100 banners. There are also pictures around the walls of the beautiful side chapel. The range of work is gruelling and moving and lovely, well worth a visit.

Maeght Foundation

My daughter has lived in the South of France for more than 20 years now, and when I go to visit her, she always tries to arrange a special day out for me.

So, on a fine February morning, we set off from her village of Bar sur Loup, in the mountains above Nice, towards the village of St. Paul de Vence. This is a fortified medieval village surrounded by a high wall, and its little streets probably contain more artists per metre than anywhere I have been.

Norfolk Sixth Form & College Art Exhibition

The Norwich County Council is working on an initiative to “encourage creativity in arts subjects and support young people in their aspirations, break down barriers and raise standards.” To this purpose the first ever Norfolk Sixth Forms and Colleges Art Competition was conceived. The touring exhibition of works selected by Norwich University of the Arts has already been in Norwich and Holkham Hall.
