The Norwich School and East Anglian Connections - King's Lynn Festival
16-28 July including Sunday 22 July 2pm – 6pm
The exhibition will close at 4.00pm on Saturday 28 July
The exhibition is presented in partnership with Artlands, and will feature an eclectic collection of works from 19th Century Norwich School pictures to recent works by artists who draw their inspiration from the East Anglian terrain.
Etchings by John Sell Cotman (1782-1842) and published in his lifetime will feature alongside watercolours and oils by artists including Henry Bright (1810-1873), Samuel David Colkett (1800-1863), John Thirtle (1777-1839) and John Crome (1768-1821).
Toby Winteringham, who lives and works in Norfolk, makes exquisite furniture, combining his modern, up-to-the-minute designs with the highest quality workmanship. His work will be shown alongside porcelain, made and hand-painted in Norfolk by Grahame Clarke who is creating special pieces for this exhibition. Paintings by Kevin Ryan and Ann-Marie Ryan echo the East Anglian landscape and will hang with textiles by Janet Harker who now lives in Suffolk.
Artlands has shown works by Quebec artists for some time, drawing parallels between the influences of land and sea on artists in Quebec and East Anglia. Continuing this theme will be works by Daniel P.Simard; Remi Lacroix; Eric Tardif and Linda Morin.
In addition to these beautiful works there will be some equally glorious surprises to delight the eyes of festival visitors as other Festival events charm the ears.
Artlands sells pictures and sculpture through occasional exhibitions and for private clients and has been based in East Anglia for more than 12 years. Artlands specialises in both 19th Century Norwich School pictures and in 21st Century works of interest and relevance to East Anglia.
