Seven local artists, including two members of the East Anglian art group Norwich 20, are currently exhibiting in St Stephen's Church in Norwich with their exhibition After the Storm?

The work, hung within the nave of the church, displays a mix of pieces in a range of medias which were made during the national lockdowns.

Artists from the long established group reacted to the way of life as we knew it, creating works reflecting on emotions and scenarios of the lockdowns.

The cafe within the nave will be open as usual, to enjoy refreshments as you sit within the artwork created by Frances Martin, Richard Cleland, Gwyneth Fitzmaurice, Liz Monahan, Mandy Rogers, L.S Walker and Helen Wells.
