3 - 28 August, times vary
Hostry Exhibition Space
A picture of art work by the artist Geoffrey Lefever
Exhibition of abstract art with surface textures from materials such as wood ash, burlap with combustion and fine open weave Indian paper. The geometry within the works, together with the muted colour range, will resonate with the structure, fabric and patina surfaces of stone and timber within the Cathedral.

Recent works on canvas were made at Geoffrey’s studio, Fengate, near Marsham in North Norfolk and works on paper under glass at Postwick and in various locations around Europe.

The exhibition title, ‘Ash on an Old Man’s Sleeve’ is an emotive phrase borrowed from T.S. Eliot’s Little Gidding.

Geoffrey Lefever has been a member of Norwich 20 Group since 1965. He has exhibited with the group in Norwich’s twin cities, Koblenz, Novi Sad and Rouen. He is a member of the Union des Arts Plastiques in Rouen.

His friend Derek Morris, a past President of the Royal British Society of Sculptors says: “These serious and mysterious paintings demand a great deal of looking, but this effort will be repaid handsomely by meaning and understanding leaching slowly into one’s consciousness. This is a kind of painting one can return to over and over again and still find rewards every time.”

Exhibition free to attend. Open 9.30am - 4.30pm Monday to Saturday and 10.00am - 3.00pm on Sundays.
