Living the Dream

Preparing for the year ahead with all its challenges and opportunities

Living the Dream
The detail (above) taken from a new painting called "All our Dreams" is by Norfolk-based artist Claire Cansick. We would argue that work like this also helps us to reflect upon the boundless potential for change and hope that can be found when we look upwards and beyond the everyday to the star-filled night skies ahead.
We are currently undertaking studio visits to explore the personal 'dreamscapes' that many artists and makers employ to feed their particular outlook on the world.  We are pleased that some will be able to join us for our events scheduled for the coming year. In addition, new venues are being considered and booked for our pop-up exhibitions. All this promises to provide a varied and dynamic programme throughout 2023.
Take a look at new works produced recently and what lies ahead in our 2023 programme.
