Norfolk Scene: Kay Ohsten 1935-2003

Sunday 8th May - Thursday 7th July

Born in Norwich but living most of her life in Pulham St Mary, Kay Ohsten was a much loved and deeply respected graphic artist on the Norwich artistic scene.

She studied and taught at Norwich Art School and was a long-time member of the prestigious Norwich 20 Group.

This vivid show, drawing on her family’s rich archives of watercolours, screenprints and mixed media pieces, reveals the full breadth and versatility of Kay’s work, with subjects ranging from architecture (including Bungay), the local landscape, animals, flowers and figures.

All works will be for sale. 

Glimpses and Remembered Visions: Jo Budd

Sunday 10th July – Thursday 15th September

One of the most respected fabric-based artists of her generation with work held in the V&A and internationally, Jo Budd has lived and worked in the Waveney Valley for 25 years, the last 21 of them from her house and studio in Bungay, overlooking the Earsham water-meadows.

These views have inspired her to a new way of working, one involving fabric and plant-based glue in a rapid collage technique.

This now gives her “the speed and spontaneity to sketch a fleeting moment, a day or a memory triggered by the changing light, seasons and colours of this very special part of the world.”
