Artists from across the East of England are invited to exhibit at a Spring art show in the heart of Norwich city centre.

The exhibition, a staple event in Norfolk’s art calendar, will return for its ninth outing this April.

The Spring Art Show, which will take place in the Atrium at the Forum, gathers together an eclectic mix of artists working across a range of art forms.

Organised by Norwich artist Brian Korteling the exhibition will be open between 6th and 10th April. Annually attracting thousands of visitors, the selected works on show will all be for sale.

Brian Korteling said: “After a two-year gap due to the pandemic, it’s great to be returning to the Atrium at the Forum. It’s such a great space to show art, it has excellent light and there’s plenty of room to admire the work.

“People from all walks of life pass through using the library, restaurants and all the other facilities, it’s a real community hub and this makes it a perfect space to exhibit art to a wider audience.

“With many artists showing for the first time since lockdown it’s going to be even more exciting than usual to see what the artists have produced. As always it will be a fresh eclectic mix of work from local talent working in a variety of styles and media.”

Mr Korteling has lived in Norfolk for most of his life and has been a full-time artist since 2009 after a career in graphic design.

Each autumn he hosts Art Fair East will fellow Norwich artist Will Teather.

Artists can exhibit any form of 2D or 3D artwork as well as prints, reproductions and cards.

The deadline for applications is 6th March 2022.

About Brian Korteling

Brian left a career in graphic design to become a freelance artist in May 2009. Since then he has experimented with many painting styles, themes and techniques. He enjoys exploring materials and primarily paints on wood, MDF, hessian, and more recently, aluminium.

When Brian returned to painting in 2009 his main subject matter was trees, especially the bare branches of winter and the vivid palette of autumn. Since then he has expanded his practice and experimented with various styles and ideas with the most recent being inspired by the Japanese art of Kintsugi where bowls are broken and mended using gold to fill the gaps. These new pieces will be on show at this year’s Spring Art Show.
