STRAY AWAY @ THE UNDERCROFT

STRAY AWAY @ THE UNDERCROFT September sees the long-awaited return to Norwich of the Cambridge-based STRAY Group of Artists STRAY artists will be exhibiting a vast and diverse range of new artwork at The Undercroft Gallery. Their exciting show kicks off with a public launch party on Friday 13 September from 6-8pm with the exhibition running to 28 September. Building on their success at The Undercroft Gallery in 2016, guest curator Sue Law delights in hinting at the bigger and better show she’s got planned. “I loved the way well-known Norwich artist Gennadiy Ivanov curated our last show and will be exhibiting his work again this year. The range of work planned is both dynamic and fully engaging. Artists featured include specialists in sculpture, textile art, painting and public interactive artworks - it really will be visually spectacular as well as a lots of fun”. Another member of STRAY is working on a Kimono Cat Walk Show; an extravaganza of colour, billowing hand-emblazoned textiles – drama and the WOW factor guaranteed. This exhibition promises some surprises as well as being a treasure-trove of artwork rarely seen displayed together in one place. STRAY ARTISTS @ THE UNDERCROFT, The Undercroft Gallery, 112 – 134 Market Place, Norwich, NR2 1NE Exhibition runs 14-28 September (Closed Sundays) 11.00am – 5.00pm Public launch 13 Sep. 6.00 – 8.00pm ALL WELCOME Follow Stray on FaceBook: @artistswhostray and Instagram @strayartistsuk Full list of STRAY Participating Artists: Alison Litherland Alison's paintings have escaped from the confines of the canvas; the intensely coloured images are drawn from the mind's eye, painted spontaneously using no reference material other than fleeting memories and imagined places. Rosemary Catling Rosemary's work references loss and ephemerality but with a touch of humour – sometimes. Kato Catling Poems and objects combined. Unusual and individual work. Jill Ogilvy Jill's work is concerned with a sense of identity, memory and relationship, often represented by objects and containers; like characters with emotions and a story to tell. Judy Logan: The unpredictable, magical and wonderfully-surprising encounters in Judy's everyday life are distilled into vibrant thought-providing images. Deanna Tyson: Deanna enjoys having the luxury of being able to express her thoughts and opinions in a visual form. Manuela Hubner Human impressions, Direct. Emotional, Sensuous. Nicola Powys: Making art is profoundly emotional, an expression of hope, a proposal for living alternatively. Susie Olczak Susie's work asks the viewer to look again at the world; it is about the perception of geometry, pattern and light. Gennadiy Ivanov: Gennadiy is interested in how people define themselves, how identity is constructed and manifested publicly. Cheryl Warren: Exploring boundary, connection, distillation and environment via the medium of oil paint on canvas. Sue Law Sculptural artwork that is heavily influenced by negative space.

Sherry Rea Wshop - Seahorse

Overview: Learn how to make collagraph artwork by printmaking from collages.

We will explore ways of creating beautiful, interesting marks. The joy of this work is a result of transferring the ink from the plate to the paper and the effects that are achieved.

Collagraph plates can be made by cutting into the card, peeling away layers of card, and by adding a variety of textured surfaces.

Suitable for beginners or those with some experience. In my workshop in Elsworth using a press. Although primarily a printmaking workshop, the day would be stimulating to those working without a press, and I will look at hand burnishing in relief printmaking and collages as textured artwork.

What to bring: All tools and materials will be provided.

 Workshop cost: £30 for Members and Friends, £40 for Non-members. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided but please bring a packed lunch.
