For MOLLY THOMSON painting is a process of construction, reconfiguration, application, observation and assessment. It is a process she repeats until the point is reached when each individual painting achieves a balance between its painted surface and object presence. That point of balance is as individual as each pain ting, although on the face of it these are monochromatic paintings. A single carefully chosen colour creates a lush colour field. However, there is a surgical precision at work here.
The works of Michael Woods are focused on the form and shape of the ancient pottery traditions, realized in a contemporary style. We have just received some new pieces in his "Landscape" series and are showcasing them as part of our pop-up exhibition in the stables at Houghton Hall.
PANDORA MOND was educated at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art in Oxford and has painted all of her adult life.We are delighted to be showcasing her paintings as well as some more recent woodcut and linocut prints in our showcase at Houghton Hall. She returns again and again to the subject of the sea, from up-close as well as from satelite imagery of estuaries and river systems across the globe – read on to view more
We were excited to receive an invitation to view newly installed works by painter Brüer Tidman, photographic artist Mark Cantor and sculptor Andy Sloan. It was an ideal morning for our visit - or so we thought... nearly 1,500 bikers (of every denomination!) made their way down the Acle Straight into a drizzle soaked Great Yarmouth along with us. Our efforts were to be rewarded in abundance however... not only an authentic Portuguese custard tart and more than descent coffee on King Street but a wonderful exhibition awaited us
We are delighted to be offering new works for sale by Norwich based artist MOLLY THOMSON. Painting for Molly is a process of construction, reconfiguration, application, observation and assessment. It is a process she repeats until the point is reached when each individual painting achieves a balance between its painted surface and object presence.

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.

All employ traditional painting techniques in figurative and abstract styles, including oil, watercolour and acrylic paints, as well as print and photography.
