Exhibition: Paradise and Other Places

Artist Mick Abbott's watercolour exhibition Paradise and Other Places will run from Wednesday 29 January until Thursday 20 February.

Artist's statement:

Although the exhibition contains lots of hopefully recognisable Norwich faces, it is much more about people than portraiture and how a timeless richness of experience is captured in our expressions. Whenever appropriate , I have compared the faces with examples of spiritual art.

Secondly, I have tried to blend modern day situations with religious art. There are interpretations from treasures within  this cathedral. Some whimsical such as misericords, some serious such as the Despenser Retable.

I would like to thank the local people who kindly agreed to be drawn.

All Hostry exhibitions are free and open Monday to Saturday 9.30am-4.30pm and Sunday 10am-3pm.
