Special art exhibition reflects Queen’s association with Norfolk

A ROYAL theme will run through an annual exhibition of work by Great Yarmouth artists this month.

Members of the Great Yarmouth and District Society of Artists are displaying original pieces they created especially for Her Majesty to mark her Diamond Jubilee and her connection to Norfolk.

The 21 pieces of arts were presented to the Queen in a leather bound book earlier this year while she was at Sandringham.

The artworks, created in various mediums, reflect her lifelong association with the county and feature its coastline, countryside, architecture, people, flowers and wildlife. And they will now go on show for the first time at the society’s annual exhibition.

Also on display during the week-long show will be work by Wilfred Sutton who died in July aged 95. The memorial exhibition will celebrate more than 70 years of painting by this remarkable artist and include both paintings and cartoons.

Visitors can also enjoy a range of original works from 20 artists, alongside the jubilee and memorial displays.

The exhibition is being held at the Library Galleries in Tolhouse Street from September 8-15 and is open from 10am-4pm Monday to Friday, and 10am to 1pm. Saturday.
