There are four Harleston & Waveney Art Trail members – Nell Close, Gill Levin, Dee Nickerson, and David Rock – whose works are included in a prestigious exhibition ‘Inspired by Birds’ at Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery. Nell has two paintings, the others one work each. The show was organised by the East Anglia Art Fund, supported by Arts Council England and Norfolk Museums. A £1,000 prize for ‘best in show’ was given by Brown & Co, the principal sponsor.

The exhibition is on from 12 July to 31 August 2014. Exhibitors are from East Anglia; 418 artists, photographers and sculptors submitted 847 works to this open exhibition, with 133 works by 118 people being selected. The show is a companion to a major loan exhibition, conceived and curated by Norfolk Museums & Archaeology Service ‘The Wonder of Birds: Nature, Art, Culture’ exploring the cultural impact of birds on mankind, from 2000 BC to the present day. It is open from 14 May to 14 Sept 2014.
