Norwich 20 Group - It Takes Two

It Takes Two - Norwich 20 Group Artists Collaborate will be staged at
St Margaret’s Church, St Benedict’s Street, Norwich NR2 4AQ from Monday, May 10 to Saturday, May 22, open daily 10am to 6pm , free admission.

Norwich 20 Group's spring exhibition follows on from last year's Voicing Visions, when artists and poets collaborated, and gives the members of the group who include painters, sculptors, photographers and print makers, the opportunity to work together.

Norwich 20 Group
N20G was formed in 1944 comprising professional artists from the Norwich School of Art and Design. The group is no longer limited to 20 and now has more than 60 members, several of whom exhibit regularly in the West End and abroad. All aspects of the practice of contemporary fine art are represented e.g. sculpture, print, photography and painting.

Over the years the membership has included nationally known artists, for example, Michael Andrews, Bernard Reynolds and Jeffrey Camp. Colin Self has taken an active role as have numerous art historians and architects.

Mary Newcomb, one of Britain’s best loved artists, famous for her visionary ruralist paintings, who died last year, was a member of N20G for many years. Her work often sold at exhibitions for around £20. It now changes hands for five figure sums. Current N20G members include Andy Campbell, David Holgate, Ros Newman, Vanessa Pooley and Laurie Rudling. http://www.norwich20group.co.uk, tel 01603 666011
