Harleston & Waveney Art Collective, based in the picturesque Waveney Valley on the border of Norfolk and Suffolk, will be exhibiting at St Margaret’s Church in October.

The event is a rare opportunity to see this diverse group’s work in Norwich in one location.

Visitors will be able to see more than 300 works from 30 artists who ordinarily host an art trail through the Harleston and Bungay area each summer.

Exhibition organiser Jayne Wurr said: “The exhibition is about more art and less trail this time. Traditionally visitors have come from Norwich to us, so we are going to Norwich to return the favour.

“This is a new departure for us, artists will be able to exhibit numerous works and we expect to see more than 300 artworks on show.

“We are a diverse group of people and we felt we needed to head to the city, the time has come!”

The range of work on show will include painting, sculpture, textiles, printmaking, illustration, mosaic, batik, photography and bookbinding.

A number of demonstrations will take place throughout the exhibition including embroidery by Christina Greathead, book binding by Lark Images, rag rugs and woven tapestry by Dinny Turner, sculpture by Bobbie Watchhorn and a talk by Nicky Stainton about her latest body of work.

During the exhibition the group will be selling tickets to raffle off a small artwork from each of the participating artists. Tickets will be sold throughout the week at £1 each. The final draw will take place on the Sunday 27th with winners being informed via email.
