Captain Corelli’s Mandolin author Louis de Berni�res opens exhibition in Norwich

A well-known artist of the written word has opened an exhibition featuring the work of more than 50 visual artists in Norwich.

Norwich 20 Group (N20G) has returned to the atrium of The Forum for its spring show, Looking into 20, and the show was opened tonight (Monday) by Captain Corelli's Mandolin author Louis de Berni�res, pictured.

At the opening, he said: 'With artists aged from their twenties to their eighties, there is every possible style and influence in the Norwich 20 Group exhibition, with so much variety and no prevailing orthodoxy. This diversity makes the show very interesting. There is humour here as well.'

The Looking into 20 exhibition features the work of artists whose ages range from early 20s to early 80s, and their work includes sculpture, print, photography and painting. There was a prize for best in show shared by Frank Pond and Rachel Long. Ms Long's winning sculpture is a wild boar made out of recycled materials and Mr Pond's winning mixed-media work is called Head on a Block.

The show is open daily from 9am to 5pm until May 24. Free entry. For details go to
