Tuesday 10th March until
Saturday 21st March
The 4th Red Dot Mini Print Exhibition showcases a collection of original print works from over 175 artists from all over the world, including Taiwan, Israel, Europe, America and the UK - even from Norwich! The creative criteria is that all pieces are no bigger than a 10cm x 10cm square or 12cm x 7.5cm rectangle, resulting in over 400 pieces of original work. The selected print-makers include prolific artists from around the world, professionals, students, hobbyists and first-timers. It is an all-inclusive exhibition that displays many of the different print-making techniques, materials and skills! A true variety of pieces that includes something for everyone!
Olivia an artist and maker based in the UK, living and working in Norwich. She creates a wide range of work which includes mixed media art pieces, block printed textiles and jewellery. Olivia’s work is concerned with exploring what it means to be in her body through her daily creative practice and evolving process.
Olivia’s style is organic, raw, and playful. It relies on spontaneous making in the moment with no fixed intention or outcome. Her work evolves slowly and riffs on a range of elemental marks, shapes and symbols which are eternally enduring to her such as spots, circles, stripes and crosses. Olivia weaves together colours, patterns and textures across her range of media to create one of a kind pieces which are primitive and
Vision Norfolk’s first Artist in Residence, Amy Fellows, is taking a new look at how we see sight loss: redefining an image that misrepresents blind and visually impaired people. The aim: to challenge perceptions and to re-educate audiences on what sight loss means and what Vision Norfolk has done since 1805.
An exhibition, titled Sight Lines, in April 2020 will see work from visually impaired participants using Vision Norfolk’s services, alongside work by guest artists. Artwork for the exhibition has been created during a series of workshops with the Artist in Residence and visiting practitioners. From painting and portraiture, photography, creative writing, sculpture, print and experimental performance, this project sets out to prove just what is possible whilst living with sight loss.

As well as working from important internet images of devastating and moving images of climate change around the world, I am also recording the personal. My artwork is a record of the world around me and the way in which I, as an individual, am relating to it, affecting it and being affected by it.
I want to show how each person is implicated in the climate emergency, and to communicate the need to change ways of life. It is also a way of attempting to understand how the wider political and economic situations are impacting on climate change. I see my artwork as a way of illustrating and publicising, in hopefully an accessible way, the work of climate change scientists.
Celia will be running two workshops alongside her exhibition and there will be a free talk on Climate Change.

Having “long and willingly traipsed along” in the shadow of David Hockney’s pioneering and boisterous pushing at the boundaries of drawing and painting on the mighty iPad, Ken has found a tipping point where tricksy computing meets and makes way for traditional craft.
Large scale, individually made serigraphs are the result. They sit at the centre of this exhibition, each displayed as a framed piece alongside a small edition of just four or five affordable one-off screen prints.
Distillation, bold shapes and big colours remain a discernible trademark and there’s still room for some smaller scale fun with hand-made prints like ‘Hockney wearing a green waistcoat’ and some intricate little oil-on-paper studies.

In my painting I try to express the essence and drama of something I have seen. I try to do this not as a direct transcription from the view to the canvas but rather as a pictorial or graphic representation of it. Whilst my work is figurative my paintings have a strong abstract quality. Colour is an integral part of my approach which is important in both expression and structure. The colour is drawn from observation but is heightened or painted in a different key.
The structure of my paintings is important to me - drawing and colour play their part as does balance and organisation within the picture plane.
David Jones will also be running a Meet the Artist/Open Sketchbook event on Saturday 11th April.
