Call for visual art celebrating Norfolk
The search is on to find great visual art celebrating Norfolk for a new element to an arts festival that showcases local talent.
The Hostry Festival is back at Norwich Cathedral's Hostry this autumn, and new for this year will be a special exhibition called My Norfolk which aims to reflect the diversity of the county and the artists living and working here.
Artists are now being invited to take part and send in submissions of their work.
Théodora Lecrinier, the festival's visual arts co-ordinator, said: 'We are open to Norfolk and Norfolk-based artists to submit their work of Norfolk and sense of place. We really want to show people 'what is Norfolk' and who we are in Norfolk, and showcase the work of traditional and contemporary artists.
'We are open to submissions of any size and any medium. We welcome sculptors, painters, print-makers, photographers and all artists to submit work.'
