Diss shops to display artwork for second year

Shop windows in Diss will be turned into mini art galleries as they display dozens of pieces from a local collective of artists.

For the second year, visitors to the south Norfolk market town will be able to follow an art trail which not only promotes the area's artistic talent, but also puts local businesses on the map.

More than 50 shops will take place in this year's trail, which runs throughout September, with contributions from members of the Waveney Springs Art Collective.

Last year the initiative was backed by South Norfolk MP Richard Bacon, who took a tour of the artwork around Diss with some of the participating artists.

Art in Shop Windows will launch with a taster exhibition of both professional and amateur artists at The Old Stables Gallery, at Diss Corn Hall, from September 2 to 16.

Artists will also be taking part in two Open Studios weekends, where visitors will be able to attend their individual studios to discuss their work and learn their techniques in a wide range of media including drawing, painting, sculpting, textiles, stained glass and printmaking.

Open Studios will take place on September 10 and 11, and September 17 and 18.
