This year the remarkable North Norfolk Exhibition Projects celebrates 21 years with the 20th exhibition, intended for 2020 and realised this summer.
Spread across 2 venues –
Saint Margaret’s Church, Holt Road, Cley-next-the-Sea, Norfolk NR25 7TT
Norfolk Wildlife Trust, Cley Marshes Visitor Centre, Coast Rd, Cley next the Sea NR25 7SA
The 20th exhibition, curated by Amanda Geitner, features work by 60 artists and includes painting, sculpture, textiles, photography and ceramics – a marvellous range of work addressing themes as diverse as the migration of birds, the movement of the stars and the pure pleasure that can be found in colour and form. Amanda Geitner says ‘ nowhere embraces work that signals our psychological spaces, exhibited here temporarily, but ultimately belonging everywhere and nowhere – work that brings our attention firmly back to the now here’
We are saddened to share the news of John Midgely’s untimely death 1st November 2020, he will be remembered fondly, a long time supporter of NNEP.
I was on the NNEP committee in the first decade of the century where I came to know fellow committee member, John Midgley. His warm modesty and his generous enthusiasm for other artists’ work, and a love for painting and it’s possibilities of bringing people together never flagged. He always enjoyed exploring the language of painting and loved the opportunities to show his own work and also other people’s. I will miss his warm handshake and his keenness to know what one might be up to and excited to see how things were going. He will be greatly missed by me and the many people who had the good fortune to know him. Michael Horn
