Norwich artist Andrew Reeve is transforming his home into a gallery and inviting the public round for a cup of tea.

Mr Reeve will open his St Benedicts Street flat to the public every weekend in October and is calling the project ArtFlat. He was inspired after he and his wife Emma visited the studio and workshop of the late Catalan artist Joan Miró in Mallorca.

Mr Reeve, a Norwich 20 Group member and a Norwich University of the Arts graduate, said: “Opening our home to people seems a very nice way for them to see and purchase work, which in turn helps the creative process...It’s a great way for people to ask questions about art and being able to share what little knowledge I have is of immense pleasure. Plus there is the benefit of free tea and coffee.”

• ArtFlat is every Saturday and Sunday in October 12pm-3pm at 44c St Benedicts Street. Visit www.andy-reeve.com/artflat

  • Underlying Nexus_6's jocular posting is a serious point. Of course Mr Reeve is an attention-seeking showman, and good luck to him! Most of the artists whose works hang on the walls of our great galleries had to crawl to popes, politicians and plutocrats to earn a crust. I fall into none of those categories as a potential patron, and after filling the walls of a modest dwelling with work by family, friends and local exhibitors, I am under strict orders to leave my wallet at home, but shall nevertheless take advantage of Mr Reeve's hospitality and shall look forward to meeting him. Incidentally, a brief foray into the artist's website shows that some of his work can be seen at Wroxham's Riverside Art and Glass, with which I have absolutely no connection but which is well worth the trek across the bridge from Roys to see some interesting work in very pleasant surroundings.

  • I should open up my flat as an art installation.I do unmade beds way better the Tracy Emin ever could,and the pile of washing up in the sink is a sculpture in itself.But if you want sugar with your tea and coffee,you'll have to bring your own.I haven't bought a bag for about the last five years.Sorry,no kids allowed.Or men.Strictly females aged eighteen to forty.Please form an orderly queue at the door.Thank you.
