Overstrand art centre plea for fruit and veg art

The Belfry Arts Centre at Overstrand is appealing to local people to get creative and take part in a fruit and vegetable-themed art exhibition aimed at promoting healthy eating.

The centre has teamed up with the village gardening club to stage Five a Day, an exhibition of artwork inspired by locally-grown produce.

Exhibits will include museum-style creepy crawly specimens created from plasticine by pupils at Northrepps Primary School, a tree made from recycled materials by youngsters at the Belfry School, Overstrand, and a selection of fruit and vegetables grown by local gardening club members and allotment holders.

Curated by North Norfolk District Council arts officer Brenda Seymour, the show, which runs from September 16-18, will also feature paintings and sculpture by local artists.

Belfry Arts Centre creative director Nora Gaston said: "The exhibition is part of a series of events with artists working in schools and what we wanted to do was to celebrate the healthy lifestyle we have in this beautiful part of the world.
