PAINTING – BOB BILLINGTON AND SCULPTURE – BRUCE GERNAND
Without claiming a strong focus or intent, these particular works which give a title to our exhibition seemed to indicate where our individual interests and trajectories did coincide. Over the years, aware of one another’s ongoing production, the possibility of sharing an exhibition presented itself as an invigorating opportunity and a way of extending our respective practices. Addressing consistencies and contradictions, we think this show will be a source of challenge and interest in revealing processes of two coherent yet differing singular practices.

Since 2008, The Voice Project has been creating unique site-specific choral performances. This winter, we’re very excited to be making a new piece to be performed in January 2018. It will be the next episode in our series of linked performances following on from Between Stars and The Arms of Sleep (“one of the most magical nights of my life” Outline Magazine) exploring themes of dreaming and waking – a point of light in the darkest part of the year.
Rehearsals will start on October 17th with a taster session on Tuesday October 10th. The taster session (£5.00) will be at the Friends Meeting House, Upper Goat Lane, Norwich NR2 1EW.
All welcome. All music is taught by experienced vocal leaders Sian Croose and Jonathan Baker. For more details, go to our website. www.voiceproject.co.uk
The rehearsals take place on Tuesday evenings from October 17th at the Friends Meeting House and some Saturdays at the United Reformed Church (see below for full rehearsal times and dates.

New Exhibition at Designer Makers in Diss from 3 – 26 August showcasing wood products crafted at Street Forge Workshops in Thornham.
Drop-in colouring workshop at Diss Corn Hall 10 August.
There’s a terrific exhibition just opened at the Diss Corn Hall, one of Waveney & Blyth Arts associate members. It’s from a Norwich artist, Alice Lee. Drawing on a considerable pedigree of work (which saw her shortlisted in the Norfolk Arts Awards), she has produced a series of very precise, geometrically-inclined, technical drawings of birds.
But it’s site-specific too, in intriguing ways. There are birds she has seen on Diss Mere. There are birds featured in an extraordinary poem by the Diss bard John Skelton, which you can read in the exhibition. And the whole show is mounted in a format, and using colours, that reflect the exciting space that the Corn Hall has become since its recent renovation.
But most of all, the works are moving and intriguing in themselves presenting birds in geometric shapes of circles and parallel lines that remind us of the old fashioned world globes.
Alice is also doing a free drop-in colouring-in workshops (all ages) 11am-3pm and 10 August. See you there maybe.
