NORFOLK CONTEMPORARY ART 2016
nca16 is the fifth in our series of biennial open shows of recent work by artist members of Norfolk Contemporary Art Society (ncas), and will be located in both The Forum’s Atrium and in their new Gallery. The exhibition this year forms part of our 60th anniversary celebrations.
The selectors were Harriet Loffler, Kate MccGwire and Kimberley Foster. They met on the 4th July and had a tough time sifting through all 350 images submitted! They finally chose a total of 68 works from 49 artists (ten of whom are NUA students) that will all appear in the final hang. Many thanks to the panel for the hard day's work they put in.
The selection panel can smile after their tough assignment: l. to r. Kimberley Foster, Harriet Loffler and Kate MccGwire

The Makers at Felbrigg Hall: Call to Artists
The National Trust in partnership with Norfolk Contemporary Art Society have now appointed three artists for ‘The Makers’ a contemporary art residency and commission project resulting in an exhibition at Felbrigg Hall, Norfolk during 2016-2017.
Felbrigg is a seventeenth century house that still retains the feeling of a family home while presenting the precious collections of some of its early residents. There are many fascinating paintings, sculptures, furniture and objects, reflecting making in all its forms and also an extensive library of books and manuscripts. The walled garden includes diverse plant species, fruit and vegetables and is rich in wildlife.
The artists appointed will have the opportunity to become inspired by Felbrigg estate, its house and grounds, during a week long residency from 3 to 8 October 2016. The residency will form a period of research and enquiry and each artist will then work up a proposal for work or works inspired by the place.
The work will be made and installed as an exhibition, on view to visitors during summer 2017.
