Fermoy Gallery Re-opens for Festival Exhibition
The high-profile festival exhibition in the Fermoy Gallery at the King's Lynn Arts Centre complex opens on Monday. The exhibition feature the work of American-born colourist and draughtsman Alfred Cohen who settled in Norfolk in 1978 and continued to work in his studio at Wighton near Wells until his death in 2001.
A collection of his pictures exploring the theme of light and water are being loaned by the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts at Norwich in the second year of a partnership with Lynn Festival. Alfred Cohen’s work features in major public collections in Britain and abroad.
Also on show at the gallery will be sculptures by Susan Bacon which were inspired by some of Shakespeare’s most memorable creations. They were originally displayed at the Globe Theatre last year as part of The Globe Project.
The gallery is open daily Monday to Saturday (July 18-30) from 10am-4pm and entry is free.
