The Breckland Artists return to The Forum for a second year with a new and vibrant exhibition.
Breckland Artists are a diverse group of fifteen artists, living and working in the south west of the county, who originally got together following participation in the Norfolk Open Studios scheme a decade ago. The group’s longevity and appeal owes much to the diversity of subject matter and the range of techniques employed. Breckland Artists celebrated their tenth anniversary by exhibiting at The Forum in the centre of Norwich in 2012.
The group, which includes artists specialising in painting, printmaking, sculpture, glass, ceramics, photography and textiles, will be bringing an eclectic and vibrant mix of work to The Forum to delight and inspire the people of Norfolk. With the artists themselves staffing the exhibition, they will be on hand to welcome visitors and to discuss aspects of their work.
New artist member, Marie Dawe, joins the group for the first time at The Forum exhibition. Marie is an artist specialising in fused glass and her work will be an exciting new addition to the Breckland Artists exhibitors.
Roger Gamble, Chairman and one of the founder members said, “Our 2012 exhibition at The Forum was extremely well received and we are delighted to be returning with a new selection of work. We hope that visitors in 2013 will share our passion for the visual arts and enjoy the work on show.”
Breckland Artists have been exhibiting annually in Norwich for the past six years and, in 2013, bring a new and exciting body of work to The Forum. With their exhibitions becoming increasingly popular in recent years they are confident that this exhibition will have something for everyone. Members have been included in, and won awards in, major national and regional exhibitions with their work seen in many galleries in East Anglia and beyond.
The Breckland Artists’ exhibition will be held in the fine space of The Forum, located at Millennium Plain, Norwich. Staffed by the artists themselves, the show runs from Monday 15th July through to Sunday 21st July, 9am to 5pm, daily.
