Top artist to reopen Wymondham Arts Centre

A Norfolk artist, whose colourful artwork hangs in prestigious galleries across the world, will be launching Wymondham Arts Centre's third season at Becket's Chapel with an exhibition of her new work.

The exhibition by Maz Jackson, who grew-up in New Buckenham and now lives in East Harling, will feature her surreal egg tempera gilded paintings, as well as sculptures and woodcut prints.

Her paintings are in permanent gallery collections in Beijing, Bologna, Florence and the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, USA.

Her 2011 schedule also includes exhibitions in Barcelona, Bologna and a solo show at the Basilica di San Lorenzo in Florence.

The Wymondham show will be an early opportunity to buy examples of her new work.

Maz said: 'I am very pleased that Wymondham Arts Centre invited me to launch its 2011 season. It is wonderful to be revealing my new work so close to home as I draw much of my inspiration from the Norfolk countryside. It is also heart-warming to get recognition in my own backyard.'

The exhibition will run from March 19 to April 10. Opening times are Monday to Saturday, 10am to 5pm, and Sundays, midday to 5pm. Entry is free.
