An Ingenious Mini Gallery

The Schumann Cabinet was made in 2001. The Association had only been formed the year before and no exhibition programme had yet been formulated.
I had the idea of a cabinet of small works hanging on the wall and Liz Falconbridge agreed that it could hang on the wall of the Arts Centre foyer. I commissioned it from Toby Winteringham, our wonderful local precision cabinet maker.
It first appeared in November 2001 in the Arts Centre and was nicely illustrated and reported on in the Lynn News. After a few months in the Arts Centre it was moved to the Doric Arts Gallery in King Street, where it was well received (until the gallery eventually closed).
