Spring Salon 2021: Living with art and the handmade

27 April - 1 June 2021

Every once in a while, as part of what C&C do in promoting contemporary art for domestic living spaces, we organise a Salon. An installation of contemporary art and objects selected for sale on the website (or works that are similar or equivalent) photographed and installed in an unusual, beautifully designed living space.

When we could finally assemble and install a Spring selection it was already April before we could follow up with a photoshoot and walk-through film clip at this beautifully converted single-storey barn annex between Holt and Fakenham in North Norfolk.
This award-winning contemporary space was designed by Norwich-based Architect Charles Emberson. It was completed a couple of years ago as independent accommodation for expanding family needs, serving as a family space for grown up teenagers, as well as a state-of-the art garage/workshop for the owners' classic car collection. The building was declared the winner of the Norfolk Architects Associaition (NAA) Design and Craftsmanship Award in 2019.
We hope you enjoy the combination of art, sculpture and handmade objects that we have used within the space. We would like to thank the owners for allowing us to turn their lovely light infused annex into a temporary repository for art, the moment government guidelines permitted.
