Lonely Arts Club
Undercroft Gallery, 6th-29th October 11am -6pm (closed Mondays).
Spiralling Upward is the title of an ambitious new exhibition coming to the Undercroft in Norwich in October. This is third time that The Lonely Arts Club has staged a group show at this interesting city centre venue. When this eclectic group of artists come together there is always a sense of excitement and experimentation. There is collective commitment to finding new ways to interact with each other and the audience. There will be site-specific work, as well as various installations, large-scale photography, paintings sculptures and prints.
Installation is well represented by five of the LAC members: Mike Dodd whose large-scale installation will show his response to the natural world. From Jacqui Jones we will see On The Rise which considers a world where political and environmental climates are changing. Andy Hornett creates site-specific installations from everyday discarded detritus that he obsessively collects. Jan Crombie brings us a fictional environment created out of wet clay and presented alongside other works focusing on the unreal world of a disillusioned astronaut.
Three LAC Photographers will present work using wide-ranging techniques and themes. Adam Goodman photographs the natural environment as he finds it. Simon Marshall’s manipulated photographs reflect his interest in the human condition and our place in the world. Julia Cameron will install a series of evocative photographs in a mysterious dark space.
Andy Sloan makes sculpture from recycled industrial steel elements.
2D work will be presented by Natasha Day who will bring her recent sensitively painted scenes and details from nature to add to the mix, and by Jayne McConnell who is a printmaker. Alongside her soft ground etchings she will be including an embroidered shroud she has made in response to having seen one created as a child by a relative who died aged 101.
The Lonely Arts Club is an exciting group of artists based in the East who come together with the aim of showing outstanding new work from a range of disciplines.
For the third time in the spacious Undercroft Gallery the Lonely Arts Club will be showing the breadth of practice of its members, from contemporary and innovative to traditional Fine Art 2-D and 3-D works.
Lonely Arts Club don't have a permanent exhibition space but often exhibit in the Undercroft.
The Undercroft is located in the city centre, under the Memorial Gardens at the back of Norwich market, in front of City Hall and near the Forum.
