Autumn Exhibition – Harleston & Waveney Art Collective
Harleston & Waveney Art Collective, who are based in the picturesque Waveney Valley on the border of Norfolk and Suffolk, will be exhibiting at St Margaret’s Church in Norwich this October.
The event is a rare opportunity to see this diverse group’s work in Norwich in one location.
Visitors will be able to see more than 300 works from 30 artists who ordinarily host an art trail through the Harleston and Bungay area each summer.
The range of work on show will include painting, sculpture, textiles, printmaking, illustration, mosaic, batik, photography and bookbinding.
A number of demonstrations will take place throughout the exhibition including embroidery by Christina Greathead, book binding by Lark Images, rag rugs and woven tapestry by Dinny Turner, sculpture by Bobbie Watchhorn and a talk by Nicky Stainton about her latest body of work.
During the exhibition the group will be selling tickets to raffle off a small artwork from each of the participating artists. Tickets will be sold throughout the week at £1 each. The final draw will take place on the Sunday 27th with winners being informed via email.
Visitors will also be able to vote for their favourite artwork with the incentive of winning a copy of the group’s popular book Waveney Reflections.
The exhibition is open from Tuesday 22nd October until Sunday 27th October, 11am – 6pm (except Sunday which is open 11am – 5pm).
The majority of works will be for sale at the event which takes place at St Margaret’s Church of Art, St Benedict’s Street, Norwich, Norfolk, NR2 4AQ.
