The exhibition, running from May 3 to July 12, reflects Catherine’s upbringing on her family’s Norfolk livestock farm surrounded by animals, woodland and fields. Her accessible and warm representation of farm animals against bright block-colour backgrounds brings modernity to a traditional subject.
Aylmerton resident Catherine said: “‘Back to the Barn’ is extremely meaningful to me in so many ways - looking back on where I've come from and taking in all the beauty we've taken for granted around us and bringing it out on canvas. I love watching the characters emerge and recreating their personalities.”
NNDC seeks to offer free opportunities to local artists to display their work in the 1st Floor Gallery in the Council’s Holt Road offices in Cromer. Currently six exhibitions are held annually.
Cllr Becky Palmer Cabinet Member for Leisure and Culture said: “It’s great to be able to offer artists a space to exhibit their works for the public to appreciate. ‘Back to the Barn’ is a super collection of paintings and prints and we are pleased to be able to host them.”
The NNDC Gallery is open to the public on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday 8.30am – 5pm; Wednesday 10am – 5pm and Friday 8.30am – 4.30pm.
