“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) first exhibition of contemporary art by established artists for 2022, kicks off a series of seasonal selections at the Granary Gallery to run throughout the year. They will include paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture and photography by artists based in or close to Norwich and from across Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire.
Their fresh, innovative work reflects the unique qualities of the people and landscape of East Anglia. While locally sourced, the assembled artworks have been selected by C&C to complement the cleaner lines of the contemporary British and European furniture, lighting, and soft furnishings with international brand names for sale at The Granary – on the second floor of this flagship store.
In August 2021, Arts Council England published research called A High Street Renaissance: How arts and culture bring people and pride back to our high streets. In response to this, C&C have joined forces with Jarrold to bring retail and cultural expression together through art to celebrate the creative process and civic pride in the City of Norwich.
Emerging from the COVID pandemic, C&C wish to play our part in re-establishing cultural activity in the city, adding to a more enjoyable experience in Norwich’s creative quarter. The Granary Gallery is well placed on Bedford Street, as a new art space. It is close to East Gallery (NUA’s dedicated gallery), Fairhurst Gallery, Moosey Art and Mandells Gallery in Elm Hill, all within ten minutes walk, strengthening the city’s art trail.
