This local group of artists returns, celebrating the natural world.

Fri 16 Oct – Sun 1 Nov, 11am – 4 pm daily.

An exhibition of distinctive ceramics, sculpture, painting and textiles from a group of North Norfolk artists. Their return to the outstanding Handa Gallery this autumn, (October 16 – November 1), celebrates their work with a spirit of optimism and commitment to creative endeavour.

Natural Lines brings together the work of Elaine Banham, James Crisp, Alison Henry, Norfolk Makrs, Don Seed and Kate Vogler, all of whom are drawn to aspects of the natural world for their inspiration.

The artists all live and work in North Norfolk and bring their working knowledge of materials, unique approaches, finesse and freshness to a coherent and thoughtful exhibition.
