Jazz Green: Cley 16 Contemporary Art exhibition

Jazz Green is currently exhibiting new work in Cley 16: In Norfolk Now, an annual exhibition of contemporary art in the beautiful setting of St Margaret’s church in Cley-next-the-Sea in north Norfolk. Additional artworks selected for Cley 16 are located at Cley Windmill Shop, Crabpot Bookshop and the Norfolk Wildlife Trust Visitor Centre. There is also a programme of events, including creative workshops, musical concerts, curator talks and seminars.

Cley 16: In Norfolk Now is open daily 10am to 5.30pm, 7 July – 7 August 2016.

Cley 16 is organised by The North Norfolk exhibition Project (NNEP). The NNEP was established in 2000 to develop opportunities for innovative and contemporary art in North Norfolk. The NNEP is now widely regarded for its summer exhibitions of contemporary art, originally at Salthouse from 2001-2011, moving to Cley in 2012. Each year a different curator is chosen to select artists from an advertised ‘Open Call’. The shortlisted artists meet the curator at the Church in the new year to discuss plans and ideas for the exhibition. In 2016 Hugh Pilkington, artist, curator and award-winning architect, selected seventy three artists from two hundred artist applications, both a record number of applicants and shortlisted artists for this renowned regional exhibition.

cley16-art-exhibition-church-2016

From the Cley 16: In Norfolk Now curator, Hugh Pilkington:
The works demonstrate a wide range of practice from pure abstraction to representation: the abstracted landscape to the photographic; the sculptural – small works, maquettes for larger works, and floor-based pieces; and a group of artists working with fabric and stitch in the chancel of the church. There are installations and interventions, and site-specific work on the beach and around the church. We are pleased to include that remarkable organisation, Barrington Farm, whose members are showing work in the church and the Norfolk Wildlife Trust Visitors Centre. For the first time the Fine Art MA course at the University of the Arts in Norwich are participating as a group and the students have been using the exhibition as a live art project.

Chris Gamble’s clever and witty artwork, “Homing In”, is a flying owl made out of ladies nylon stockings. That should ruffle some feathers!

Seven Ways art exhibition at Wymondham Arts Centre, Norfolk

Artworks artist Jazz Green has some paintings in a new exhibition ‘Seven Ways’, featuring the work of seven contemporary East Anglian artists, united by friendship and their connection to the Waveney Valley.

The seven artists in ‘Seven Ways’ are: Nell Close, Clare Cummins, Miles Fairhurst, Jazz Green, Richard Hunter, Dee Nickerson and Julie Noad. Here are some photographs of the exhibition.

Seven Ways promises to be an engaging and eclectic art exhibition, showcasing the seven artists very different approaches – from gentle observations of country ways, musical elements of still life, scenes of nature, landscape and skies to bold abstract forms and textures of the earth.
