Exhibition featuring works by Ian Simm, Tony Nero Darren Stevenson, Margie Nottingham & David Lewis

Exhibition:19th January – 9th February 2019 – Time: 11:00am – 4:00pm

A new exhibition ‘That’s Life’ opened last week at the Norman Cross Art Gallery and features some stunning work from a number of artists with a variety of styles. This includes abstracts, figurative, portraits and landscapes.


Ian Simm who had a serious Stroke in 2009, which left him unable to use his right hand, has taught himself to paint, and returns to the gallery with a selection of oil paintings. While Tony Nero, who is no stranger to the gallery and is currently artist in residence, showcases a few pieces of his Legends portrait drawings, which were first featured in his solo exhibition ‘This is Me’ in 2017.


This exhibition includes a piece from Darren Stevenson’s who is a professional artist and his inimitable style and passion for Norfolk in his paintings of seascapes, capture the imagination of the observer in his technique expressed with powerful emotion.


Also we have Margie Nottingham who worked as a Teacher for 18 years but left teaching to develop her art practice. She uses a gestural abstraction style and pushes boundaries as she explores what she can see and feel in an abstract creative way. David Lewis has worked as an animator and a teacher in the past, now works in various 2-D media including hand-made drawings on the iPad.  He draws mainly from observation even when the final outcome is completely abstract. Then finally we have two impressive ink and wash portraits from former Stamford student Flossie Lockwood, who was once picked out by Prince Charles for her work.


Gallery Open to the Public – Saturday 10.30am until 4.00pm
