Spring 2024

This Spring, we are delighted to be showing an exciting collection of original oil paintings by Bella Bigsby in our lovely, spacious, light filled gallery. We also have a full range of limited edition prints. Bella is based in Norfolk. She returned here recently after living and exhibiting her work in California. Bella paints in oils on canvas.

Summer Exhibition – Now Open

Mixed media painting 'Norfolk Saltmarsh III' by Steven Levitt

Our mixed summer exhibition is now open until the end of September and featuring new and recent work from many local artists and makers. Joining us for the first time this summer is local painter Steven Levitt, showing a number of mixed media contemporary paintings inspired by Norfolk’s landscape and coastline. He is showing alongside gallery regulars including Rachel Thomas, Nigel Skinner, Kate Heiss and Mary Blue.

Steven Levitt

For the first time, we are delighted to welcome mixed media artist Steven Levitt who works from his studio in Sheringham. For thirty three years he ran a hair and beauty business based in Ealing Broadway, but also with salons in Soho and Pinner. From a young age art was always a passion, but running a business left little time to paint. He was lucky to be able to use photography as a substitute.

Twenty six years ago, he moved to North Norfolk with his wife and two young sons. This meant travelling back and forward from Ealing to Norfolk. However five years ago he was able to sell his business. The very next day he started to paint, and indeed virtually every day since from his studio in Sheringham.

He has had five years to find his unique style. For Steven it is not about realism, but more importantly a sense of feeling, whether it is capturing the changing moods of the Saltmarsh, or some of Norfolk’s beautiful beaches. It is important to him that when you look at one of his paintings you will always see something new. Mark making, mixed media and collage are all used to try and achieve this.

Our annual Christmas show opened on 26th November and continues until the end of January 2022.  It has been such a pleasure to welcome friends and customers to the gallery again after such a prolonged period of uncertainty, and we are extremely thankful for everyone’s support.

We are delighted to be showing new oils from Rachel Thomas, acrylics from Mary Blue and Carol Ann Grace and reproductions of mixed media work by Nigel Skinner. The exhibition also includes work from a number of gallery regulars including linocuts from Kate Heiss, ceramics by Jane Bygrave and new Limited Edition Prints of work by Jo Quigley, Nicky Litchfield and Bev Davies.

We will be open as usual over the festive period, Tuesday – Sunday 10am – 4.30pm, only closing for 25 – 28 December and 1 – 4 January, when we will be taking a break.

COVID-19 – UPDATE – Lockdown Restrictions

From 6th January 2021, Norfolk has entered Lockdown restrictions compelling all non-essential retail to close to the public. This means that the gallery and shop will be closed until this situation changes. Our website will be operating as normal, with UK deliveries remaining unaffected, and we are permitted to offer click and collect, so that purchases can be collected contact-free from the premises.

The framing workshop has resumed production but we are working slightly reduced hours due to the joys of juggling home schooling with work. We are working on all existing orders which can be collected contact-free when completed. Local deliveries can also be arranged where necessary. For all new framing enquires, please contact us – remote consultations by video and email can be arranged. Ideally, any work that requires framing should be dropped off with us for the design process to begin.

Stay safe everyone, and we look forward to welcoming you back to the gallery when we are permitted to do so.

COVID-19 – UPDATE – Tier 4 Restrictions

From 26th December 2020, Norfolk has entered Tier 4 restrictions compelling all non-essential retail to close to the public. This means that the gallery and shop will be closed until this situation changes. Our website will be operating as normal, with UK deliveries remaining unaffected, and we are permitted to offer click and collect, so that purchases can be collected contact-free from the premises.

After the festive holidays, from Tuesday 5th January, the framing workshop will resume work on all existing orders which can be collected contact-free when completed. Local deliveries can also be arranged where necessary. For all new framing enquires, please contact us – remote consultations by video and email can be arranged. Ideally, any work that requires framing should be dropped off with us for the design process to begin.

Stay safe everyone, and we look forward to welcoming you back to the gallery when we are permitted to do so.

COVID-19 UPDATE – Open from 2nd December 2020!

Now that Lockdown 2 has come to an end in England, we are delighted to be able to open our doors again. Our opening hours have returned to normal – Tuesday – Sunday 10am – 4.30pm and it is fantastic to welcome customers back! We will be open right up to and including Christmas Eve. Website orders are being sent out as normal, and the last date for Christmas orders is Friday 18th December, after that we will do our best but cannot guarantee you will have your items before Christmas.

We are working hard on customers’ framing orders, doing our very best to get things finished for Christmas. If you are thinking of giving the gift of bespoke framing this year, make sure you get your orders in before the 13th December, as after that date we will not be able to promise they are completed in time.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our friends and customers for the continued support in this challenging year, it has been invaluable. We hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
