“Escape into art... there is still plenty of great local art to see, enjoy and buy.”
Dominic Castle (Editor of EDP Norfolk Magazine)
Contemporary and Country’s (C&C) second exhibition by established artists has now closed at the Granary Gallery, Norwich. It's All Happening Here was a group exhibition that included paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture and photography by artists based in or close to Norwich and from across Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire.
The assembled artworks were selected for two installations of two and half months duration in this temporary space. Consisting predominantly of contemporary landscape painting and prints with some photographic still lives, curated by C&C to complement the contemporary European furniture – on the second floor of Jarrold's flagship store.
After emerging from the COVID pandemic and in line wiith the aims set out by an Arts Council initiative to bring art to the high street, C&C wanted to play our part in re-establishing cultural activity in the city. Our collaboration with Jarrold added to the experience of Norwich’s creative quarter on Bedford Street. We had many visitors to this beautiful, light, warehouse space during the summer months, celebrating the creative process and the natural environment within the confines of the City of Norwich.
