Light, Norwich 20 Group
The Undercroft, below Norwich War Memorial NR2 1NH
Tuesday 13 to Saturday 24 June, open 12noon to 5pm, free entry
Twenty-five members of Norwich 20 Group (N20G) will be exhibiting larger works in The Undercroft below Norwich War Memorial, focussed on the theme of Light.
The exhibition will include digital video works and installations, with some being created especially for the venue. The display and hanging of the work will also reflect the Light theme, in the wonderful, huge, dark cavern of a space that is The Undercroft.
New members exhibiting are Gennadiy Ivanov and Julian Cameron, along with Chrissy Leech, a former NUA student, who has completed a year as a licentiate member and is now a full member of N20G. www.norwich20group.co.uk
Norwich 20 Group
N20G was founded in 1944 by Walter Thomas Watling, art master at CNS, supported by Aileen Law, art teacher at Blyth School and 12 other local artists. Stimulated by contemporary art movements, they wanted to raise standards of local professional art to something worthy of Norfolk’s artistic history.
N20G now has more than 80 members from across Norfolk. All aspects of the practice of contemporary fine art are represented, sculpture, print, photography, painting, digital media and installations.
Over the years N20G has included nationally known artists, for example, Michael Andrews, Bernard Reynolds, Edward Barker, Leslie Davenport, Mary Newcomb, Jeffery Camp RA, and Cavendish Morton. Many current and past members have received patronage, exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and Galleries in East Anglia, London and internationally, with works in both private and public collections. Some have received prestigious awards, including election to the Royal Academy.
N20G has strong links with Norwich’s twin cities and has held joint exhibitions with Novi Sad, Rouen, Koblenz and El Viejo.
