Smashing Success at Heritage Open Day

What a day! Perhaps it was the sunshine on 16 September that contributed to the wonderful good feeling on Heritage Open Day. Regardless, we were thrilled with the enthusiasm and turn out.

In the Shakespeare Barn, Michele Summers’ greeting and explanation of activities got everyone into the creative mood.

Coming soon to Greyfriars Art Space……

West Acre Gardens and ‘The Artocracy’

At the suggestion of one of our members, my husband and I visited this delightful walled garden with some very interesting plants, shrubs and trees. The sun was shining on us that day and although a lot of the plants were over there was still plenty to see. It is relatively small and easy to walk around and there is a bench under one of the trees to sketch or simply sit and contemplate.

Naked in Church

Recently on reading a news item in a national newspaper ‘Nudity Rings Alarm Bells at Cathedral’ I was prompted to write about my own experience of exhibiting art in churches since living in Norfolk. I have always felt slightly inhibited by the atmosphere of religious spaces for exhibitions, particularly having only previously exhibited in a gallery environment where I felt free to show work without boundaries or restrictions.
