The Natural World Art Society Exhibition at the Forum, Norwich 27 September to 3 October 2021.
There is a lot of preparation by artists beforehand for such a large exhibition. Panel space needs to be sorted and equipment tried out for size to fit in each artist’s allocated space. People like to rummage, so I placed my spare cards in a “rummage box”. Also on display on my stand were the little River Friend books about things riparian and riverine, six of which I have published so far. The Artist’s Panels of work as delivered in the little film are listed below the link
Mine (Tina Bone) – All [natural] things bright and beautiful; John Palmer – Whacky frames with lively pictures; Helen Rawlings – Moonlight capers and feather work; Rosalie Gibb – Cute Puffins and penguins, all with names; Marie Bridge – Exquisite needlecraft pictures in 3D; Jan Heath paints on used tea bags and Victoria Bond’s fabulous images made from paper cutting; Chris Bacon – Fantastic pencil and colour work; Angela May Smith – Transforms pastel work into photorealistic images; Frances Sullivan – An artist with epic skills regarding all things equine; Tony Colledge – manipulates his photographs to produce stunning colour vistas; Carol Creswell – shows the spirit of big cats and their habitats; Viv Rainsbury has a unique and lovely painting style and Ann Croucher’s beautiful birds and African animals evoked many lovely comments; Jan Lacey’s depiction of Australian reptiles and spiders is second to none and her floral and landscape artworks were fabulous. We also had a flying visit from Superman, AKA Charlie, and a big hug for me – he loved my parrots painting. I was incumbent all week and had a red kite painting on the go. It was lovely to answer peoples’ questions and to receive their kind comments. The painting is now on the back burner as I have to continue working on my next little River Friend Book entitled “Water: Clean and Dirty”. This is one of the illustrations for it – the Roman Baths at Bath. The Forum, Norwich, Norfolk – what a place for an art exhibition.
