Friday 16 December 2022
The Cut, Halesworth
Tickets £5 available from The Cut website.
Two local art historians talk about their recent books, and review how art and its study have developed. There will be the opportunity to ask questions and discuss the issues raised. Find out, for example, why we need to go to Aberdeen to see Stanley Spencer’s painting of Southwold. For more information on this event click here
Arc of the Sky Competition
The angel has landed.
Our competition combining elements of Sculpture in the Valley and the recent Arc of the Sky choral performance in Blythburgh church has been won.
The invitation for artistic responses to the Voice Project’s Arc of the Sky film (still on Youtube) brought in 21 entries – poems, drawings and paintings.
The judge, a professional poet, awarded the prize to Marilda Barton, a Norwich-based member of the choir.
And the prize itself – one of Cindy Lee Wright’s peace angels – was presented this week in a simple ceremony on the city’s Fye bridge.
Read the winning entry and the runners up here.
