The Easterly Artists are back for the fourth year with the latest in their series of acclaimed pop-up exhibitions, taking over a disused property at the top of Lowestoft High Street and transforming it into a vibrant contemporary art gallery.
165 London Road North, Lowestoft NR32 1HG
Friday 8 – Sun 17 September Open daily, 10am – 5pm
Titled Missing Banksy, this year’s show is a tribute to the famous graffiti artist’s 2021 Spraycation tour of Lowestoft and the surrounding area, and also a reference to the fact that much of the work he left for the public to enjoy has since disappeared into private collections around the world.
Ben works with linocuts, screenprints, etchings and drypoint; he also paints landscapes. Working from a visual diary, he creates combined processes, thoughtful narratives and colourful prints which combine colour, draughtsmanship and humour to produce a contemporary viewpoint on the ever-changing world in which we live.
“Flock” runs till 22 July. The Grit is at Old Court Buildings, Old Nelson St, Lowestoft NR32 1EQ; opening times are: Wed – Sat: 10am – 4pm.
Hilary is opening her studio this weekend on Saturday 10 – Sunday 11 June from 10am – 4pm, as part of 2023 Suffolk Open Studios. Sadly, Hilary can only do the one weekend this year so it’s going to be a busy couple of days!
This is one of two larger pieces which she will be showing: “Facing Forward, Not Looking Back” (oil on canvas)
Make your way down Beach Road, NR33 7RW and look for the signs on your left, or message Hilary for directions.
For the next 2 weekends, Easterly Artists member Paul Zawadzki is opening his studio and gallery at 24 Upper Olland St, Bungay NR35 1BH as part of this year’s Harleston & Waveney Art Trail (HWAT) – see https://hwat.org.uk/ for more details.
Paul is No. 12 on the HWAT map. The trail is open 10am – 5pm every day of each weekend and continues until Bank Holiday Monday 29 May.
