North Norfolk District Council’s public art gallery welcomes local artist John Mezzetti with a collection of photographs.

Cromer resident John has been a photographer for 30 years.

This collection of prints and prints on canvas explore portraits with landscape, urban and environmental themes.

John said: “I first became interested in photography in my late teens, and took an O level in it at Paston Sixth Form in North Walsham. My work comes out of where I live. North Norfolk offers so much material that can be interpreted in so many ways that there really never is a blank canvas here.

“There is also a very particular light in North Norfolk, near the coast – the mornings and nightfall are a photographer’s friend, every day there is something new that can be caught by the lens.

“I’m so pleased to be able to exhibit at the District Council.”

John’s photographs will be for sale.

Cllr Maggie Prior Cabinet Member for Leisure and Culture said: “It’s great to see photography in the Council’s exhibition space. Photography is something so many people have the technology to do these days and to see it done well can be hugely inspirational. Do come and see John’s exhibition, and if you are an artist yourself then apply to show your work in the Council gallery.”

The exhibition opened on January 31, 2017 and runs to March 21, 2017 at the NNDC offices gallery in Holt Road, Cromer.

The 1st Floor Gallery is open to the public Monday, Tuesday and Thursday 8.30am-5pm; Wednesday 10am-5pm; Friday 8.30am-4.30pm. NNDC seeks to offer free opportunities to local artists to display their work in the well-lit gallery and in turn provides staff and visitors to the building the opportunity to see a variety of different artists’ work.  Currently six exhibitions are held annually.
