Debby Besford has been documenting the restoration of the Venetian Waterways in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk for the past few years. This Yarmouth landmark reopened at teh end of August 2019 and Debby used images taken by her late father of their childhood visits and has re-presented then now, taken within the setting of the newly refurbished waterways and bridges.
Arts Council England have published findings from independent research which shows arts and culture are up there with good schools when people make their decisions about where to settle across the country. There is not only tangible value in investment in the arts, but also huge public demand for it.

The designers we showcase include wood turner STEVE GORE ROWE. Our makers create beautiful pieces from decorative furniture, soft furnishings and objects for the home. All use a diverse range of materials, often natural, associated with the eastern region. Including seashells, to hand-turned wood and ceramics, to wool and glass.
Capturing the splendour and drama of both the urban and natural landscape of the eastern region. KATARGYNA COLEMAN (right) paints the urban landscape of Great Yarmouth while others we showcase depict the beauty of coastal reaches, open fields, fens and woodland. All employ traditional painting techniques in figurative and abstract styles, including oil, watercolour and acrylic paints, as well as print and photography.
