Heritage Open Day at the Fermoy Gallery

‘come into the garden’ with Lesley Williams

Several of our members spent the day at the Fermoy Gallery on Heritage Day demonstrating and engaging visitors in various activities. 670 people came through! We were there partly to flag up West Norfolk Artists Association, to help get the gallery space noticed and of course to encourage participation in the arts. We had a mini exhibition as well showing work by those who were involved.

The Norwich School Of Painters

John Crome

A talk by Barbara King for the Ringstead Village Club

The Norwich School of Painters were a group of artists living and painting in Norwich in the late 18th and early 19th century. They included John Crome, John Sell Cotman, and others who can justifiably be considered masters of 19th century British art and they formed the Norwich Society of Artists which was the first and longest lasting provincial artists association to hold regular exhibitions in Britain.

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.
