Commercial art galleries are now welcoming us back with open arms and a new exhibition Views From Inside, is set to open at the Mandell's Gallery in Norwich.

The exhibition combines the recent works of sculptor Rob Woods and painter Peter Baldwin. Both the Norfolk-based artists work with the idea of a mysterious presence within the ordinary.

Rob Woods said: "Through sculpture I endeavour to express a more personal and caring view of the world. It becomes the essence of myself looking out into the eyes of strangers and inviting them to share my experience." The Mandell's Gallery describe his work as "both kinetic and static, whimsical and serious."

Peter Baldwin uses traditional painting methods to explore symbolic narratives, portraying human stories within natural settings. His work has a soft, dream-like quality to it, sharing the "joy of experience".
