Don’t miss ‘A CHATTERING MELANGE’
Tony Bellars third solo exhibition at Greyfriars Art Space, with new and a few favourites, this show should delight everyone with it’s quirky humour and colourful pallet!! Well worth a visit!!
The Sould Café in King’s Lynn was our chosen venue for the first Art Exchange of the year. On a chilly February morning, we had an informal gathering in the gallery section of the Café. Pat Hillard was showing his work so it seemed only natural to ask him to say a few words.
2011: Sea Weed Printing Fund Raiser for St Nicholas Chapel
It was an exhilarating and exciting experience, as a new arrival to Norfolk in 2008, to be leading screen painting and printing workshops in St Nicholas Chapel. There was no water but an enormous table with enough space to accommodate 20 people and large screens and squeegees. I was very surprised by being in a church environment for the first time as a practising artist – gradually it dawned on me that coming to Norfolk was going to church! Everything seemed to be happening in churches all over the county.

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.
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.
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.
EXHIBITION OF PAINTINGS & SCULPTURE
Ali is a Lebanese artist with an international reputation.
The exhibition of painting and sculpture will be the first that Ali Atrissi has had in the UK and will feature some works that have been previously exhibited in the Russian Cultural Centre in Beirut.
Starting on Wednesday 7th February and running through the month during resturant opening hours, Pat Hillard will be the featured artist at the recently opened Kings Lynn Soul Café.
There will be a reception on the evening of the 7th from 7pm all are welcome.
Interview with Esther Boehm
THIS YEAR WE FELT VERY PRIVILEGED TO HAVE VERONICA SEKULES OF GROUNDWORK GALLERY SELECT THE BEST IN SHOW (SYD DAVISON CUP) AT THE SUMMER EXHIBITION. SHE CHOSE YOUR WORK. HOW DID THAT MAKE YOU FEEL?
I was very surprised and it felt great to have my work chosen. It had been quite a struggle to get the pieces finished as I had a few false starts with the resin work. The precision needed with the technical side was at odds with the energy I wanted to portray in the work. The prize felt like a reward for my persistence!
