Artlands Christmas Exhibition
ALISON CROOSE Artlands, Nelson Street, King's Lynn
Artlands, Nelson Street, King's Lynn
Sherie Nadoo and John Austen have created a Christmas wonder-land of visual arts with a cross-section of works to whet the appetite.
Contemporary paintings sit comfortably alongside work by artists of the Norwich School in the elegant and cosy domestic setting with textiles and sculpture adding to the depth of interest among some 100 items on show.
Works of the 21st century include the vivid hues of acrylics by West Norfolk artist Ann Marie Ryan, and equally strong colours in paintings by Kevin Ryan. Janet Harker also uses vibrant colours for her silk wall hangings.
Especially fascinating are the sculptures in bronze by Mark Richard Hall who has created exquisite items such as plums and chestnuts which beg to be handled.
