New Lowestoft Pop-Up Art Gallery – Local Artists Take over Empty Retail Unit in Town Centre
An exciting new exhibition space has opened in Lowestoft, with a group of local artists taking over an empty retail unit in Unit 22 of the Britten Centre in the middle of town, for six weeks in April/May.
Featuring new works by some of the most creative and dynamic artists North-East Suffolk has to offer – many on show for the first time – this new, one-off exhibition puts the ”art” back into the heart of Lowestoft. And entry is free!
The gallery shows work by 12 Easterly Artists members, all of whom live or work in Lowestoft and the surrounding area. It provides an excellent opportunity for residents and visitors alike to see pieces by internationally recognised artists as well as work by new and upcoming practitioners, and covers a wide range of media – including painting, print-making, collography, screen-printing, artistic wood-turning, ceramics, magical realism and sculptural assemblages using found objects.
Unit 22 can be found immediately on visitors’ left, as they exit the Britten Centre underground car park on their way to Lowestoft High Street. Alternatively, park in Clapham Road car park: Unit 22 is on the right, past Lowestoft Library.
The free exhibition is open Thursday to Saturday, 11am-4pm and runs till 31 May. For more information, check the Easterly Artists website at www. www.easterly.org.uk/easterly-pop-up-gallery. You can also follow Easterly Artists on Facebook and Instagram.
