Art in a Norfolk Garden goes on show at Great Dunham, near Swaffham

A popular outdoor exhibition showcasing the work of Norfolk artists is set to open next weekend.

Launched by artist Brenda Brown in her garden at Fincham four years ago, the show has moved to the home of David and B Bryn at Great Dunham, between Swaffham and Fakenham.

Almost 30 artists have set up works in the acre plot behind the property, in The Candlestick.

Paintings, installations sculptures and other works now punctuate the pickery, vegetable patch, orchard and small copse.

Mr Bryn said the overall theme of the exhbibition was Messages.

'This is the fourth year of the exhibition but the first year we have hosted it, so seeing how all of the artists respond to the spaces in our garden will be very exciting.

'It's in a different place so it will be a different thing for people to see.'

The exhibition includes a new work by John Holmes - the illustrator whose cover work for Germaine Greer's The Female Eunuch became an iconic image of the 1970s.

There will also be sculpture, artist-blacksmithery, constructions, installations and a studio full of 2D art, pottery and wood turning.

The exhibition will be open this weekend - May 21/22 from 11 - 5pm, and from Saturday, May 28 until Monday, May 30.

Directions will be signposted within the village. Admission Free.
