The Norfolk and Norwich Art Circle have put out a call for artists to take part in a virtual exhibition showing new works of art made during lockdown.
The exhibition will support new and existing members of the circle as the arts are forced to find new ways of working during the coronavirus pandemic.
Norfolk and Norwich Art Circle was established 135 years ago in 1885, following Crome & Cotman’s Norwich Society of Artists and now has more than 200 members.
Members have included internationally acclaimed artists such as Alfred Munnings, Edward Seago and Bernard Reynolds.
Up to three pieces of art, created during lockdown and not exhibited with the circle before, can be submitted on the organisation’s website www.nnartcircle.com.
Hazel Pidsley, chairman of the group, said: “All artwork will be for sale, but to support our members NNAC will not be taking any commission for artwork that is sold, this is because we want to support our members - both professional and amateur - through this very difficult time.
