Norwich 20 Group – Twin Visions – British and German Art at The Forum Norwich - May 23-29

Norwich Twenty Group’s (N20G) spring exhibition Twin Visions, staged with artists from Norwich’s twin city, Koblenz, will take place in the atrium of The Forum in Norwich from Monday, May 23 to Sunday, May 29, free admission. The exhibition is open daily 9am to 6pm (10am to 5pm on Sunday),

Fifty artists from N20G and six artists from Koblenz are contributing to the show. Rory McShane, Chairman N20G said: “We are really excited to be staging Twin Visions at The Forum. It is the first time that N20G has shown work there. We are particularly pleased to be hosting artists from Koblenz. This is an opportunity for us to return the favour that the city of Koblenz gave us in April, when 18 N20G artists exhibited in the magnificent setting of Haus Metternich in the medieval centre of the city.”

“Twin Visions will be a lively show, reflecting the depth of talent and ideas within the group, which has gained a substantial number of new members in recent years. There will be an invigorating mixture of painting, printmaking, sculpture, textile pieces, mixed media and photography. It will also be very interesting to compare the work of German and British artists.”
Helke Steibel, one of the Koblenz artists said: “We are looking forward to the exhibition at The Forum. We are sure that there will continue to be a very good link between the N20G artists and Koblenz artists. The exhibition at Haus Metternich was an excellent start to our collaboration.”

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 70 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.
