Owned by Christo­pher and Deb­o­rah Har­ri­son, Bircham Gallery is a con­tem­po­rary art gallery in the cen­tre of Holt. Now in its 31st year, Bircham Gallery ex­hibits all man­ner of me­dia, from paint­ings and prints to ce­ram­ics, jew­ellery and sculp­ture and has de­vel­oped an en­vi­able rep­u­ta­tion, pre­sent­ing work by some of the finest Bri­tish artists and crafts­peo­ple from East Anglia and be­yond.

What can vis­i­tors and clients see at the mo­ment?

Head­lin­ing our print­mak­ers ex­hi­bi­tion (Jan­uary 11 to Fe­bru­ary 5) is Nor­folk print­maker Ni­cholas Ward, whose de­tailed and minis­cule etch­ings de­pict a life­time’s ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the dis­ap­pear­ing in­dus­trial and agri­cul­tural life of Bri­tain. We will also be show­ing prints in var­i­ous me­dia by Eleanor Havs­teen-Franklin, Hilke MacIn­tyre, Bron­wen Sleigh, James Dodds and Melvyn Evans.

What are you look­ing for­ward to this year at the gallery? Any key ex­hi­bi­tions?

We have an ex­cit­ing year of ex­hi­bi­tions planned for 2020 in­clud­ing artis­tic duo Elaine Pam­philon and Christo­pher Marvell in March. Other artists ex­hibit­ing in 2020 in­clude Peter Clay­ton in Fe­bru­ary. Peter en­joys work­ing and ex­per­i­ment­ing in a wide va­ri­ety of paint­ing, draw­ing and print me­dia.

His world is es­sen­tially sim­ple; imag­ined and gov­erned to a large ex­tent by the con­straints of the ma­te­rial. bir­cham­gallery.co.uk 14 Mar­ket Place, Holt NR25 6BW 01263 713312 [email protected]­cham­gallery.co.uk
