Cley 20 nowhere · 2 July – 2 August 2020
Message from the curator, Amanda Geitner
I have so enjoyed meeting so many of you and working on nowhere together. I am grateful for your work, the generosity of your responses and the creativity of our conversations. We are still working towards the delivery of the exhibition for July 1, but in the short term, yesterday’s announcement takes some things out of our hands.
This month, the exhibition committee meeting and all my planned meetings and studio visits will need to be postponed. We will keep in contact and rearrange meetings when we can.
Please bear with us. We still hope that nowhere can happen this year. Our fall-back would be to postpone to next year. This is uncharted territory for us all and what seems to be unfolding is that decisions are made for us. So for now, let’s keep an understanding that nowhere is going to go ahead as planned, until it becomes clear that this is not possible.
Such sad and stressful times. Stay safe and well, we shall be in touch and until then, wishing you all the very, very best.
Cley Contemporary Art is produced by the North Norfolk Exhibition Project (NNEP) which was set up by local artists 200 and became a charity on 2014. NNEP aims to bring contemporary art to the public in an area where there is no public contemporary art gallery and to provide a place for artists with a connection to Norfolk to show new work.
It is an annual contemporary art exhibition that takes place in St Margaret’s Church and the NWT Visitor Centre, Cley-next-the-Sea and is supported by workshops and events. The exhibition runs from the first Wednesday in July to the first Sunday in August each year
Special thanks to St Margaret’s Church and the PCC for sharing their beautiful church and to the Norfolk Wildlife Trust for the use of its Visitor Centre, the spectacular setting and beach and to the community of Cley-next-the-Sea for their enthusiastic support.
