From Saturday 13th July 2019 to Monday 20th January 2020
In 2017, Norfolk-based artist Tor Falcon began a new and ambitious series of drawings documenting the rivers of Norfolk along with their streams, trickles and ditches.
Falcon's work will sit alongside the work of the Norwich School of Painters. Like those artists some 200 years ago, Falcon walks to find her subject, making drawings outside, the scale and medium of the work dictated by their portability.
The artist describes the endeavour as an education in geology, geography, history, environmental issues and conservation. Rivers are an essential environmental element, shaping landscapes, agriculture, villages, towns and cities. This project is fascinating, engaging and fundamentally interdisciplinary – we anticipate a broad audience engagement and appeal.
This exhibition is free with admission price.
