IN THE FRAME...
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! timclaytonjewellery.com
