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.
