Art collection set to open in Norwich

Acoustic musicians will greet art lovers to the opening of a new art collection in the city on Thursday night.

The 'Mesh Collective' will be going on show at Art in the Underbelly, beneath The Rumsey Wells pub on St Andrews Street, from 8pm.

Brought together by artists Richard Horne, Daryl Williams, Tim Wall, Jo Stafford and Vicki Johnson, the main focus is poster designs that have been hand-made and screen-printed at Stew Print Rooms on Fishergate.

The group describe the collection as: 'Formed from interactions made around textile and paper screen printing tables, the Mesh Collective comprises illustrators, textile designers, graphic designers and print makers.

'United by a love of poster design and paper printing, the collective are producing a body of work for their debut show.'

Local bands Olympians and Hello Bear will be playing acoustic sets and will be joined by Free King DJs for the opening, which is free to attend.
