We went along to preview an interesting new exhibition at Greyfriars Art Space, the fascinating little gallery just opposite Greyfriars Tower, where we met the artists and enjoyed a glass of wine.
Kit Price Moss, chairperson of the West Norfolk Artists Association, told us “This year we are holding an exhibition with an unusual format, and we’ve called it ‘Tall & Thin’. It’s been an opportunity for our members to think outside their normal comfort zone and produce work that must not be wider than 11 inches.
“We’ve had a terrific response here at Greyfriars Art Space, and we’ve been quite astounded by the creativity you can see here. We have works suspended from the ceiling, ceramics and sculptures besides the usual paintings. Everyone will know Helena Anderson from King’s Lynn, and one of her pretty silk paintings is hanging in the window.
“It’s well worth coming along, there’s something for everyone.”
Kit has one of her own works on display ‘Kittywake Castle’:
“It’s from a drawing of some seabirds I drew whilst visiting North Berwick and Dunbar last summer, depicting nesting kittiwakes on a pinnacle.”
The ‘Tall & Thin” exhibtion continues at Greyfriars Art Space, (opposite Greyfriars Tower), at 43 St. James Street, King’s Lynn until 1st of June.
We thoroughly recommend you take a trip to the exhibition to see these extraordinary works by the talented artists of West Norfolk!
