Hosted by North Norfolk Artspace, the shows feature paintings and prints by well-known artists and photographers including John Midgley, Helen Herbert, Richard Millington, Ger A Elwood, Martin Battye, John Vesty, David Morris, John Rance and Maureen Cherry.
Proceeds will go to the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC), an umbrella organisation made up of 13 humanitarian aid agencies, including the British Red Cross, Oxfam and Save the Children.
Exhibition organiser Karen Bethell thanked all those who had submitted work for the show and donated prints, sketches and greetings cards, as well as the Westcliffe Gallery, Sheringham, whose owners, Richard and Sheila Parks, have offered to sell one of the more valuable donated paintings.
“I have been overwhelmed by the generosity of artists, who have given hundreds of pounds worth of work to be sold in aid of the appeal,” she said. “And although this was originally intended to be a single exhibition of North Norfolk artists’ work, I have received so many donations of paintings, prints and greetings cards from all over the county that it has been necessary to hold two shows.”
