New member The Yare Gallery, located on South Quay in Great Yarmouth, opened to the public on 29th May 2021.
This beautiful, light-filled and atmospheric three floor Grade II listed building with walled garden was once the home of parliamentarian Sir George England in the 17th century and now begins a new chapter as a setting for local and international art.
The opening exhibition celebrates the work of over 20 artists currently active in East Anglia, showcasing their work across painting, sculpture, textiles and ceramics.
WEATHERING: NEW ART FROM EAST ANGLIA, featuring the work of the Yarmouth 5, artists Katarzyna Coleman, Bridget Heriz, John Kiki, Emrys Parry and Brüer Tidman plus works by other artists from across the region.
Curator Sarah Lowndes has chosen the title WEATHERING to reflect the way that the terrain and climatic conditions of East Anglia influence work made here, but also to acknowledge the resilience of artists who work in the region, ranging from those who have been active for many decades to newly emerging practitioners.
Opening hours: 29th May – 10th July, Tuesday – Saturday, 10am – 4pm
