Paintings by well-known Norfolk artist John Midgley will be on show at the Anteros Arts Foundation, Norwich, this month, in an exhibition celebrating a decade of painting and drawing the lesser-known back roads and urban areas of the county.
Mr Midgley, who lives at Mundesley with his fellow artist wife Maggie, has enjoyed a career spanning more than 60 years, exhibiting his work in Norfolk, Suffolk and London.
His latest show will feature 30 paintings and drawings depicting scenes ranging from town centre streets in Cromer, Sheringham, Kings Lynn and Cornwall, to a series of ‘heads’, some of which show the painter Frank Auerbach, a former neighbour of Mr Midgley in Camden Town, London.
Also on show will be line drawings which will be featured in a book due out later this year entitled Art Is.
The exhibition runs from September 19-30 at Anteros, Fye Bridge Street. For opening times, phone 01603 766129.
