Norfolk Sixth Forms & Colleges Art ExhibitionMonday 19 February - Monday 16 April FREE ENTRY
The work of some of Norfolk’s most promising young artists will be showcased at OPEN.Pieces included in the exhibition were entries in the first ever Norfolk Sixth Forms & Colleges Art Competition.
The competition was organised by heads of art of sixth forms and colleges, in close partnership with Norfolk County Council, and is part of the wider aim to encourage outstanding arts education for young people across the county.
The exhibition has previously been at the Norwich University of the Arts (NUA) and at Holkham Hall. It has recently been hosted by St Nicholas’s Chapel Kings Lynn. This exhibition incorporates over 30 of the shortlisted pieces which have been on tour.
The 2017 competition attracted 400 entries from all age groups which led to the decision to hold the event again in 2018.
Another high standard of diverse entries is expected.
Pieces of work will be on display in our Box Office and can be viewed during opening hours which are:
Monday-Friday 9am-5pm and Saturday 10am-4pm.
St Etheldreda's Open Saturday - one day only - exhibition at St Etheldreda's Studios, King Street on Saturday 6 April from 12 noon - 4pm.
There will be a solo show in the exhibition space of works by Paul Meade.
Also a chance to look around the studio spaces of the 11 artists, housed within a medieval city church, with some warming refreshments available!
We are located opposite the sports building of Wensum Lodge, a short walk along the ever changing King Street, from Norwich city centre.
Request for art donations
We are a 10 bed women's rehab in Norwich established for 30 years. We are looking for Norwich artists to create inspirational art for women in recovery who would be willing to donate the art to hang in our rehab. We would publicise the donation in local press hopefully raising awareness for our rehab and the artist. Please do contact me if anyone is interested.

The story so far:
The third quarter of Belgian Surrealist artist René Magritte's lost painting of two female nudes La Pose enchantée is re-discovered hidden under another painting La Condition humaine in Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery
The whereabouts of the fourth and final quarter remains unknown.
The painting in question is about to go on view at the Pompidou Centre in Paris as part of a major exhibition of Magritte's paintings.
