Thornham Village Hall
Sat Oct 7th To Sun Oct 8th
Local artists Jill Ilett, Kit Price Moss, Stephen Martyn , Julie Witt and Chandra Ward will be exhibiting their work on the weekend of Sat Oct 7th and Sun October 8th at ‘ The Five Painters’ Art Exhibition in Thornham Village Hall on our beautiful Norfolk coast.
The exhibition is organised annually by artist Stephen Martyn, a long-time supporter of the Stroke association and indeed, some of the participating artists have been involved in teaching and facilitating Art therapy for the rehabilitation of patients that have suffered serious and debilitating strokes.
The artists taking part all have very diverse styles and will present a wide range of subjects, beautiful landscapes, wildlife, flowers and many more! There will be something for everyone!
Do pop along and visit us if you are out and about around the coast, walking the creeks or just having a day out at the nearby beaches. It’s going to be a fabulous show!!!
Kit Price Moss
Being near the coast has increased Kit’s fascination with the wildlife to be found there, living on the edge.
‘The natural world in particular inspires me. I enjoy painting and drawing outside and also work up sketchbook observations for paintings or printmaking such as linocuts in the studio.’
‘I have painted all my life enjoying mostly landscapes & gardens. Still Life is lovely to do when in my studio during inclement weather. My mediums depend on how feel about the subject. but mostly acrylic. I have exhibited my work widely & hope to continue to enjoy painting now that I am an octogenarian!’
‘I love to be out in the landscape and can often be found trudging the footpaths of Norfolk and beyond, always with a sketchbook and camera in my rucksack. The inspiration for my paintings often comes from some fleeting effect of the light that I’ve glimpsed on one of these trips.’
My work encompasses a range of subjects, but is mainly landscape based, often featuring big skies and wide-open spaces. My preferred medium is watercolour, and over the years I have done a great deal of art tuition in the use of this medium.’
Julie’s work is inspired by her emotional response to colour, and much of her artwork has been inspired by the German expressionist painters. She works mainly with watercolour, acrylics and mixed media (watercolour and ink). Her subject matter varies widely from Still life to Flowers.
‘I love to create atmospheric landscapes, and waterscapes , of both real, and imaginary places. My inspiration comes from the changing moods of nature, such as sunlight glistening on water, or the magic of shadows and clouds moving silently over sunlit fields and meadows, near my home in a small West Norfolk village, on the edge of the Fens. Wildlife also features in some of my paintings. I work mainly with watercolour, or acrylic inks, but also enjoy using soft pastels.’
