Into the Woods is an exhibition organised by Norfolk by Design around an informal network of Norfolk-based artists, designer makers and craftspeople.
The art pieces will be on display in a rural setting honouring Norfolk’s quality of light, landscape, wildlife and coast. The exhibition title references the seasonal splendour of Norfolk’s woodland at this time of year.
This special show will feature an impressive range of work, including paintings, drawings, photography, textiles, glassware, hand-finished wooden bowls and cutting boards, lights and lanterns, handmade ceramics, decorative shell work (home page image by Carolyn Brookes-Davies) and bespoke mirrors and handmade furniture.
Norfolk’s natural environment will be explored in landscapes depicted in jewel colours by Linda Jamieson. And Cornelia Fitzroy‘s work is a direct response to the changing colours, light, weather and seasons (pictured left).
Cazalet’s works are signified by their representation of nature using vibrant colours and abstract composition creating striking designs.
Into the Woods will be a rare opportunity for visitors to buy original works of art, as well as handcrafted objects and home décor, straight from the best of Norfolk’s artists, craftspeople and designer-makers.
It will be a heady mix displayed on a domestic scale, in a beautifully designed setting.
