Breckland Artists is a group of professional artists who live and work mainly in the South-West of Norfolk. Currently fourteen strong, it formed in 2002 following participation of the founder members in the Norfolk Open Studios scheme the previous year.
The subsequent years saw Breckland Artists reputation for work of the highest standards grow, and it has established itself as one of Norfolk’s premier professional groups. A major factor in this success must be due to the wide diversity of influences, media and disciplines exhibited by the artists. Painting forms a large percentage of the exhibited work, but ceramics, glass, textiles, photography and printmaking feature strongly. The members set high standards for themselves and for the group, and are constantly aiming to raise the bar of creative achievement
Breckland Artists hold at least two major exhibitions annually. The Summer Exhibition, the group’s main showcase this year will be held in the centre of Norwich at The Undercroft Gallery.
This Exhibition will be open from the 5th August - 20th August2017and will be open daily between 10.00am - 5.00pm.
We consider applications for membership twice a year in February and September. Applicants need to demonstrate technical ability and enthusiam for tasks associated with the administration of the group. Success is not based solely on how competent an artist is but also on what elements they bring to the group. Our aim in exhibiting is to present a collection of work which is diverse but complimentary, this will be considered during the selection procedure. If you would like to be considered please email jpegs of your work or your website address using our contact page.
