East Anglia Art Fund; Norfolk Contemporary Art Society; Norfolk County Council
Exhibition curated by Norfolk Contemporary Art Society in association with King’s Lynn Festival
This exhibition focuses on the historic, medieval ports of Great Yarmouth and King’s Lynn and their importance in the English sea-born trade. Drawing attention by focusing on their cultural strengths, exchanging works from one port to another and connecting them visually.
The Great Yarmouth artists showing in Port-2-Port are John Kiki, Emrys Parry, Brüer Tidman, Katarzyna Coleman and Bridget Heriz. Self-styled the Yarmouth Five, they all have studios in Yarmouth and exhibit widely both here and abroad. All five work from a strong figurative tradition.
