An Art Trail is set to return to the picturesque Waveney Valley this Spring.
Harleston & Waveney Art Trail will take place throughout the valley that forms the border between Norfolk and Suffolk this May.
Nineteen artists, including three new to the group, will open their studio doors to visitors across the weekends of 20-21 May and 27-29 May.
It’s a wonderful opportunity for locals and visitors alike to explore how and where artists work in the stunning landscapes of south Norfolk and north Suffolk.
The free event features a range of artworks including contemporary and traditional paintings, abstract work, batik, mixed media, lino prints, drawings, collage, textiles, wire sculptures plus greetings cards and prints made from the artists’ original artwork.
The artists participating in the Trail are Kath Wallace, Lisa Henshall, Caryl Challis, Rachel Wiles, Caroline Moulton, Barbara Bernard, Noelle Francis, Sara Johnson, Rosie Andersen, John Ogden, Liz Taunt, Paul Zawadzki, Malcolm Cudmore, Lin Patterson, Ingrid Duffy, Nell Close, Rhonda Whitehead, Nicci Dedman and Chris Mound.

The artist’s studios are dotted around the valley – in Harleston, Redenhall, Denton, Ditchingham, Bungay, Thwaite St Mary, St Cross South Elmham, Homersfield, Wortwell, Mendham, Weybread and Syleham.

Three new artists will take part in this year’s trail – children’s book author and book-maker Rosie Anderson in Thwaite St Mary, painter and sculptor John Ogden in Ditchingham and painter Rhonda Whitehead in Mendham.

The group and the event is sponsored by Durrants Estate Agents and supported by The Imperial Wine Company, Bungay and The Old Kings Head, Brockdish.

The leaflet to accompany the art trail will be available from locations across the region as well as in every branch of Durrants in Harleston, Halesworth, Beccles, Diss and Southwold.

Later this year the art collective will be exhibiting at the Bell Gallery on Earsham Street in Bungay in the lead up to Christmas.
