As part of the Norfolk and Norwich Festival, artists from across Norfolk will be opening their studios to the public from Saturday to 1st June.
Eight local artists from Hindolveston, Briston and Hunworth have set up an art trail in conjunction with the Hunny Bell Public House at Hunworth. The landlord has offered a 10% discount on meals to people who have followed the trail and have collected vouchers from the artists. A car or bicycle will be needed to access all the studios, which are situated in a triangle off the B1354.
The artists on the trail are all very diverse in how they work and what they produce. Between them they can show painting in oil, acrylic, gouache, pastel and watercolour; illustration; making; photography; etching and kiln-formed glass.
Beginning in Hindolveston; the old Post Office is the studio of Beth Morrison. She is an illustrator and maker, using various collected materials, being inspired by everyday things and situations that tell a story. Nearby is Audrey Bould, a pastel artist who also experiments with oils, watercolour and acrylics. She prefers to paint from life, the choice being governed by the seasons and the weather.
Just off the B1354 on the outskirts of Briston is Trevor Woods, whose acrylic images are detailed and technical, composed of clean lines, flat colours and dark shadows. Just along the road from Trevor is Nicky Webb, who works with kiln-formed glass, combining contemporary design and equipment with ancient materials and methods. She produces a wide variety of dishes, unusual and spontaneous vases, jewellery, games and ladybirds.
Down towards the Briston shops is Colin Bygrave, who is a printmaker using the traditional method of etching on metal plates to produce his landscape prints. On the other side of Briston towards Thurning, is Sandi Westwood, an oil and pastel painter, who takes inspiration from our earthly world as well as the other worlds she often escapes to.
