Lives Shaped by Sea and Faith
Photographs by Richard Denyer made in Norfolk and the Outer Hebrides.
Sad to report that shortly after installing this exhibition at The Hostry at Norwich cathedral Richard passed away suddenly at the age of 65. This is a tragic loss of a talented man. Please read the Guardian obituary here.
Susan Jones writes about how we should be supporting creativity
Get Walls is a collaborative art project between www.shhhh.co.uk and Moosey Art, our idea is simple: Get walls to paint on. Our aim is to gain approved permission to paint on residential and commercial properties in Norwich, working with local and guest artists in order to decorate and brighten up the city. When a lot of people think of street art, or graffiti, they think of a rubbish tag by a hooded vandal, on the side of a bridge only visible from a train. This is not what Get Walls is about.
