Norfolk - - NORFOLK ARTS -

Tim Clay­ton Jew­ellery in King’s Lynn has a newly re­fur­bished art gallery on the first floor of the shop. The gallery is open full time, fea­tur­ing works by lo­cal tal­ent. Billy Davies tells us more...

What can vis­i­tors and clients see at the mo­ment?

We have a selec­tion of art from lo­cal artists, such as tex­tile art by Sarah Burt, bright, colour­ful paint­ings by Emily Chap­man, an­i­mal paint­ings on canvas by Mary Lan­dles, taxi­dermy by Nicky Secker-Bligh, an­i­mal por­traits by Wendy Shuard­son and wood turn­ing by Richard Chap­man and Den­nis Hales.

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

We have an ex­hi­bi­tion in spring fea­tur­ing pho­tog­ra­phy by Paul Burn­ham. In the sum­mer, we have an ex­hi­bi­tion of pet por­traits by Jenni Ca­tor. Then in au­tumn we have an­other fea­tured artist ex­hi­bi­tion, still to be ar­ranged.

What’s the most ex­cit­ing part of the Nor­folk art scene right now?

We’ve seen an in­crease in young artists who want to get their art out in the pub­lic do­main, which is fan­tas­tic. We’ve also no­ticed that there are many tal­ented artists not ac­tively ex­hibit­ing, so of­fer­ing ex­hi­bi­tion space to these artists has boosted their con­fi­dence and shown the lo­cal com­mu­nity that there is plenty of tal­ent wait­ing to be dis­cov­ered! tim­clay­ton­jew­
