Open your heart to Art
The Coastal Marsh Artist collective is a new group of artists that have joined together to support each other and promote their art along the North Norfolk coast.
The Coastal Marsh Artist collective are taking part in the nine-day North Norfolk Open Studio Trail beginning on the 28th May and ending on the 5thJune 2022. Their collective ethos is the embodiment of the hashtag “artists supporting artists”.
The open studio days are a unique opportunity to gain insight into the artists’ working practices, and to see work that is only available for the nine-day event.
The Coastal Marsh Artists’ studios are scattered along the coast road (A149), from Burnham-Overy-Town through to Salthouse as well as meandering through the glaven valley to Binham, Wiveton, Glandford, Saxlingham and Hindringham. The range of the artist disciplines is uniquely wide – printmaking, blacksmith forging, landscape paintings, sculpture, abstract expressionism, still-life paintings, ceramics and map-making. Included in the trail are internationally collected, award winning artists, members of the Royal Society of British Artists, and the Artists Guild.
Some of the artists will also be creatively celebrating the Queens Jubilee during the open studio days, with crown making workshops and artistic competitions for children, and readings from internationally renowned poets.
Coastal Marsh Artists is one of 14 artists’ trails featured in the North Norfolk event, which involves over 135 artists in total. Trail visitors can combine their studio visits with lunch at eateries along the way which are supporting the event by putting on pre-fixe menus celebrating the ‘Artists’ Palette’ of in-season Norfolk produce. Visitors are advised to check opening times of individual artists as not all are open every day.
Take a journey along the Coastal Marsh Trail and open your heart to Art.
