Diss Corn Hall is staging a celebration of printmaking and an exhibition by a prestigious Royal Academician Eileen Cooper.
A Royal Academician for 17 years, in 2011 Eileen Cooper became the first female Keeper of the Royal Academy of Art in its 250-year history.
A painter and printmaker, inspired by art from many cultures and the underlying physicality and sexuality of being alive, Ms Cooper's work is often thought-provoking.
In recent years she has focused on lino cutting and woodcuts, a number of which will be on display in the Corn Hall alongside works in bronze and prints from local artists working in similar mediums.
Eileen Cooper RA's exhibition, Night Music (or Labour of Love) will be on display in the Corn Hall from January 10 to February 17. Running alongside the exhibition will be a display of local printmaker's work titled Printmaking in Action.
On Thursday January 11, there will be an evening with Eileen Cooper followed by a screening of a film on her work.
