New Easterly Artists’ exhibition “Moving On” opens at the Anteros Gallery in Norwich, 8-19 June.

Following the success of their two previous “virtual” art exhibitions, “Moving On” provides the first opportunity in over a year for Easterly Artists members to display their work in a physical space.

Everyone knows lock-down has been difficult for all artists, both financially and creatively – but, with restrictions easing after so many months of uncertainty, perhaps it’s at last time to peer over the parapet and allow hope to flourish again. With work ranging across painting, print-making, leporello, ceramics, digital illustration, dorodango and artistic wood-turning, this latest show represents that new spirit of hope and optimism.

 “In Isolation”

An online art exhibition opening 6.30 pm on Friday 8th May and closing at 6.30pm on Sunday 31st May

 “In Isolation”. The exhibition features some of the most creative artistic talents in Lowestoft and the surrounding area. Over a dozen artists are presenting their work, all based on their own interpretation of what it means to live through, deal with and continue to create in a period of prolonged physical and social isolation.

A key feature of the exhibition is that all the artists are donating their work for nothing. As a result, all the pieces will be available for the public to download completely free of charge. For simplicity, they will all be in A4 format, making it easy for visitors to download and print them on a home computer and printer.
