9th – 16th May, The Atrium, North Walsham
As a preview and lead up to this year’s Norfolk & Norwich Open Studios, artists from North Norfolk, Broadland and Great Yarmouth are having a Taster Exhibition at The Atrium in North Walsham from 9th to 16th May. The launch evening is on Monday 11th May, 6pm – 8pm
This annual group exhibition gives visitors an overview of up to 70 individual artists’ work in one place before the start of the main event on 23rd May. Details of all participating artists and the location of their studios can be found in the Open Studios brochure which will be freely available before and during the exhibition or online at www.nnopenstudios.org.uk.
The exhibiton will be open every day from 10 until 5 except on Sundays and artists will be on hand to greet and talk to visitors. Demonstrations by working artists are planned on the two Saturdays. Guided tours can be arranged and parties are very welcome.
The fabulous light and airy exhibition space at The Atrium has become the regular host for this preview event featuring ceramics, glass, jewellery, sculpture and textiles in addition to framed artwork by local artists.
This year we hope you will notice posters featuring one of Phil Arthur’s distinctive jugs. Phil, who is based in Buxton, makes terracotta slip-decorated bird jugs with influences from both 17th century English slipware and pre-Colombian pottery animals. We have decided to use his ‘Puffin’ to help lead visitors across North Walsham to The Atrium.
Follow the Puffin!
