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.

Talks at Anteros Arts Foundation
Running alongside and to complement Anteros’ skills-based fine art courses, Andrew Taylor is giving a series of talks looking at the historical and theoretical developments which have shaped four major areas of artistic practice; drawing, sculpture, printmaking and painting.
Each talk will provide an art historical overview of the subject and will investigate some of the theory and aesthetics which help us to place our own work in their broader artistic and intellectual contexts. These talks are intended to be a starting point for discussions within the group so please bring along your own work, your ideas and opinions and an open mind to stimulate some lively and free-ranging artistic debate. See more here

Missing piece of an exciting international art world jigsaw puzzle
comes to light in Norwich at the castle Museum
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.
