Cley 18 is an annual open submission contemporary art exhibition in and around the village of Cley-next-the-Sea in North Norfolk
Cley 18: The Greater the Distance the Clearer the View is chosen by this year's guest curator Dr Caroline Fisher.
The exhibition will be open daily 10am-5.30pm from Thursday 5 July to Sunday 5 August 2018, showing work over artists including paintings, sculptures, textiles, ceramics and installations in five locations: St Margaret's Church, the beach and Norfolk Wildlife Trust Visitor Centre on the coast road.
