12:00 Saturday 18 – 12:00 Sunday 19 June
Easterly Artists are hosting their exciting new exhibition Art NOW!, specially commissioned for First Light Festival, in a marquee conveniently located beside the boating lake in Kensington Gardens. The show will be open for the duration of the festival, so there will be plenty of time to browse and view the work on display.
Art NOW! features new work from 15 of the most exciting visual artists in Lowestoft and the surrounding area. There will be an awe-inspiring variety of mediums, ranging from painting in oil and acrylics, screen prints, mixed media collage, digital illustration and ceramics to less well-known art forms such as Dorodango and sculptural assemblages using found objects.
As an added attraction, members of Easterly Artists will be on hand throughout the show, to talk about their work and answer any questions from members of the public or would-be artists of all ages.
Artists exhibiting on the day include Bill Hayward, Chris Milham, Clare Johnson, Fiona Shreeve, Geoff Litchfield, Harvey Bradley, Hilary Barry, Malcolm Cudmore, Marilyn Jackson, Ni Gooding, Nina Roffey, Paul Zawadzki, Rosalind Bieber, Simon Turner, Tricia Davidson, Vivinne Burns
About Easterly Artists
Easterly Artists formed in 2018 as a not-for-profit collective, to provide a focal point for and promote the work of visual artists living or working within a 20-mile radius of Ness Point in Lowestoft. It currently has 26 members out of a maximum capped at 30 and meets monthly.
The group is probably best-known for its series of pop-up galleries in Lowestoft High Street, which have always been well-received and have proved highly popular. It’s most recent exhibition, Making Our Mark, finished at the start of this year at the Ferini Gallery in Pakefield, and plans are in hand for a follow-up in September.
