Anteros Arts Foundation is committed to developing a thriving, accessible arts community in this wonderful ancient building in the heart of Norwich and in connecting to the wider arts community.

Trustee Anteros Arts Foundation
Ali Marron is an analogue collage artist working from her studio in Anteros Arts Foundation.
She has cultivated a special interest in using unusual and found materials in her artwork, especially postage stamps.
She has created a unique medium and technique where she hand cuts and layers materials to make large colourful portraits and figures in her own unmistakable signature style.
A UEA Creative Writing graduate with a background in Gestalt psychotherapy and Community Arts, she has a fascination with people, narrative, identity and history.
Her artwork is made up of thousands of different images, colours, geographic locations, stories colliding together to make the foreground image or portrait which presents itself to the eye.
Ali Marron's colourful and eccentric studio is open to the public for Norfolk Open Studios 25th September to 9th October 2022 or on request.
My studio is going to be open Mondays, Wednesdays Fridays and Saturdays during Norfolk Open Studios.
You can follow Ali Marron Art Studio on Instagram @ali.marron.art.studio or you are welcome to contact her by email at email@example.com to talk about commissions, to buy art and fine art prints or arrange studio visits.
My work is the outcome of many visits to outlying areas of Britain. I make studies directly from sites which I feel express the dynamic processes of Geology and the fragility of nature. Smaller natural objects are also sources for work, fossils, stones and plant remains, which often encapsulate the wider world

Broom Boat Yard Brundall charcoal on Watercolour paper.
This is part of a series of drawings commissioned by the Broads Authority portraying communities living and working in the Broads. Many people who know and love the Broads think about the landscape: water, big skies, the breeze turning the water mills and silently propelling sailing boats along the waterways. These are the vessels that animate the scene. But who is it who keeps these vessels afloat? Without whose skills and effort the Broads would lose what makes it special.
Orit Croft is a figurative oils painter and a studio holder at Anteros. Her story telling in a Magical Realism style combines natural forms and imagination.
Orit is a strong supporter of Green issues.
