Artlands Summer Exhibition

ALISON CROOSE Artlands, Nelson Street, King's Lynn


Artlands, Nelson Street, King's Lynn

Artlands has moved from the West Norfolk countryside to the historic heart of Lynn - and though the setting has changed, an eclectic mix of paintings and sculpture still makes for a fascinating display.

Sherie Naidoo established Artlands in a beautiful old farmhouse at Hillington seven years ago. Now she has moved her home to an equally lovely house in Nelson Street where, in collaboration with John Austen, she is continuing to show 19th and 21st century art works together in a gracious domestic setting.

Colourful abstract paintings by Fring artists Kevin and Ann Marie Ryan sit comfortably alongside Eileen Hogan's watercolours. Oils, water-colours, drawings and etchings by members of the Norwich School including John Sell Cotman, Henry Ladbrooke and Henry Bright are interesting as their subjects include churches in West Norfolk and Lynn's Red Mount Chapel.

They share space with wonderful sculptures in wood by John Baldwin and Dennis Hales and bronze by Mark Hall. Works in the various media complement one another and there is much to interest the viewer.
