New paintings for Spring 2023
Linda Jamieson is a painter whose work has been closely associated with the North Norfolk coastal landscape for a while now. It is where she spends much of her time. For the last two years her work has moved away from observation and memory, toward a more imaginative use of landscape as a barometer of her own state of mind.

An exhibition of late 18th - early 19th century English landscapes
Our third visit to a gallery since the perculiarly anticlimactic easing of national lockdown was to the Castle Museum Norwich, to view the exhibition A Passion for Landscape Rediscovering John Crome curated by Giorgia Bottinelli.
She Walks in Beauty has been produced by Warren Ellis
Harriet Vyner of Cheerio, interviewed Marianne Faithfull about her recent launch of "She Walks in Beauty". Produced with composer Warren Ellis, this draws on her passion for the poetry of Shelley, Keats, Byron, Wordsworth, Tennyson and Thomas Hood and features extra special appearances by Nick Cave, Brian Eno and Vincent Ségal. Not to mention artwork created by Colin Self, a long-term friend of Faithfull. We are selling limited edition prints of these illustrations at our next pop-up at Houghton Hall Stables, Rock Paper Scissors - opening 19 May

The paintings of Lorraine Bewick
Lorraine Bewick has taken tried and tested techniques in the tradition of figurative landscape painting and applied them to her own perspective of the English landscape. Based in North Norfolk her interest in interpreting Norfolk’s expansive skies and coastal reaches as liminal space treads a path mapped out by acknowledged masters of the genre, such as John Robert Cozens and JMW Turner.

New works by Cornelia FitzRoy
