About the event
Coastlines from across the world feature in the next exhibition at The Yare Gallery, featuring paintings by members of EAGMA (East Anglian Group of Marine Artists) and photographs collated from worldwide submissions to the Global Shorelines Project.
EAGMA was set up in 1979, and is a small group of local professional and semi-professional artists who depict marine subjects. In this exhibition we have coastal works of local, national and international scenes, depicted by Suzanne Chisnell, Tom Cringle, Merrie Curtiss-Fuller, Richard Dack, Michael Daley, Andrew Dibben, Russ Foster, Andrew King, Raymond Leech, Lesley Munro, David Talks, Adrian Taunton, Rachel Thomas, Lenny Townsend, Francesca Townsend, and Ian Walker.
Alongside the paintings, we have a collection of photographs collated by the Global Shorelines Project. Kevin Healy initiated this as a way to raise awareness and funds for marine conservation charities. He has amassed hundreds of photographs from across the world of participants’ local coasts. In our projection room, there is a short film of some of the scenes captured.
Books, cards and pictures are available from our shop, which are being sold in aid of the Marine Conservation Society.
In our courtyard garden you will find Andy Sloan’s Longshore Drift and Spadge Hopkins’ sea bird metal sculptures. Why not enjoy the weather with a hot or cold drink from our new refreshment stand and take a seat?
