A bold new exhibition Back to the Barn by local artist Catherine Hall is currently running at North Norfolk District Council’s public art gallery.

The exhibition runs until July 12 and reflects Catherine’s upbringing on her family’s Norfolk livestock farm surrounded by animals, woodland and fields. Her accessible and warm representation of farm animals against bright block-colour backgrounds brings modernity to a traditional subject.

Catherine, from Aylmerton, said: “Back to the Barn is extremely meaningful to me in so many ways – looking back on where I’ve come from and taking in all the beauty we’ve taken for granted around us and bringing it out on canvas. I love watching the characters emerge and recreating their personalities.”

NNDC offers free opportunities to local artists to display their work in the first-floor gallery in the council’s Holt Road offices in Cromer. Currently six exhibitions are held annually.

The NNDC Gallery is open to the public on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday 8.30am-5pm; Wednesday 10am-5pm and Friday 8.30am-4.30pm.
