Easterly Artists – Summer Exhibition, Heritage!
Presenting a face-to-face exhibition in Lowestoft for the first time in two years, Easterly Artists’ Summer Exhibition Heritage! opens on Friday 10 September at The Art Gallery in the Old High Street.
Housed in the much missed and recently reopened historic mid-16th Century Merchant House Gallery, now given a new lease of life as The Art Gallery, Heritage! is part of this year’s national Heritage Open Days celebrations.
Visitors will see work by 16 of East Suffolk’s most talented and creative artists, covering a fascinating range of mediums: everything from portraits to print-making, landscapes to leporello, digital illustration to Dorodango, ceramics and artistic woodturning will be on show.
Ideally situated at the top of London Road North in Lowestoft’s growing cultural quarter, Heritage! offers the perfect opportunity to spend a pleasant morning taking in both floors of the exhibition and chatting to the artists, browsing the shelves in Paperworks bookshop and admiring the latest wall-hangings in Art & Craft in Wood, before finishing with a quick stroll up the High Street for a coffee and a bite to eat in JoJo’s Kitchen & Bar at No. 93.
Earlier this month, three graffiti artworks appeared across Lowestoft – these have since been confirmed by the world’s most famous street artist Banksy, as his.
Heritage! runs from Friday 10 till Sunday 19 September (closed Monday 13 September). Opening times are 10am – 5pm and entry is free. The Art Gallery is at 102 High Street, Lowestoft NR32 1XW.
Easterly Artists members are all practising artists living or working within a 20-mile radius of Ness Point, the most easterly part of the UK. Members of the group will be on hand throughout the show to meet visitors and answer questions about their practice.
