Very pleased to announce that the Norfolk Arts Visual Arts Award category is a 'win/win' with one of our group, Gennadiy Ivanov nominated, as well as Norwich 20 Group!
Here's a link to online coverage, with a report in today's EDP and Evening News - on p2 of the What's On section.
Attached is an image of many group members from one of our monthly open meetings (photo taken by Simon Marshall - thanks), which we very much hope can resume from September.
A few words from current Chair, Brigitte Hague:
'I’m absolutely delighted to hear we have been nominated for a Norfolk Arts Award!
It’s been a very difficult time for everyone in the arts this year and it’s been a true team effort between the committee and members to keep in touch with everyone and ensure we were able to exhibit.
Norwich 20 Group has a long history of being an active part of the local art scene, and I’m incredibly proud of everyone who has contributed to our activities over recent years - helping to support our members and bring art to the local community during the pandemic.
Many thanks to the Hostry Festival and EDP for all their support and recognition.
Many congratulations to N20G member Gennadiy Ivanov too, who is also shortlisted for his own projects which bring together works which often highlight difficult subjects. Recognition well deserved for all the hard work'.
