The Gallery Norfolk opens in Norwich

A vibrant new gallery – The Gallery Norfolk – opens at 60 St Giles, Norwich on 30th January 2016.

Offering high-quality, but affordable art and a carefully chosen selection of handmade craft, The Gallery Norfolk launches with a three-week exhibition of oil paintings by the Norfolk-born landscape painter Ruth Bunnewell.

Ruth’s paintings – and those of her father Leon – have become one of the main attractions at the Cromer branch of The Gallery Norfolk, which opened in summer 2012 and has achieved a notable reputation around the county – and beyond – for its liveliness and creativity.

“It’s very exciting to be bringing The Gallery Norfolk to Norwich,” says its owner Polly Miller. “Visitors to our first branch in Cromer really seem to appreciate the energy and colour that characterises the art and craft we choose. They can take its quality on trust – we make a point of searching out talented artists and craftspeople who offer something personal and special – and our style in the gallery is friendly and unpressured.”

Visitors to the new Norwich branch will be able to take some time to reflect on their prospective purchases over (real) coffee and (handmade) cake in the gallery itself, since there will be a large refectory table with a selection of art books to leaf through.
