As things start to ease back to normality, many of us are eagerly awaiting our first piece of non-virtual culture.

Cancelled in April at The Forum due to the lockdown restrictions, the Spring Art Show will now be able to open on July 11 in Pivotal House, known to many as the old Loose’s Cookshop building off Red Lion Street in Norwich.

The space has been reimagined to create a one-way viewing experience, keeping visitors safe to enjoy the exhibition without worry.

Social distancing measures will be place and visitors will be encouraged to use hand sanitiser upon entrance and exit.

Lockdown has been a strain on artists, with workshops and exhibitions cancelled and craft shops closed, and they have had to re-invent the way they work.

Organiser and artist Brian Korteling said: “We are really excited as artists to finally have the opportunity to show our work again and, after months of lockdown, most of us have new and exciting work to show.”

Mr Korteling is a local prize-winning artist and co-hosts Art Fair East each year.

In 2016, Mr Korteling won the judges prize at the Waveney Valley Sculpture Trail and he has also won prizes in the Norwich Paint Out plein air competition.

The exhibition will feature work from more than 35 professional and amateur artists from Norfolk and Suffolk.

This will include paintings, prints, drawings, photography, sculpture, ceramics and assemblages, all for sale, alongside cards and prints.

As we start to cautiously emerge from lockdown, it is a great time to think about supporting locally in the way we shop.

The Belated Spring Art Show exhibition will be open from Saturday, July 11 until Saturday, July 25 (closed Mondays) from 10am to 5pm.
