We exhibit art and craft from across the eastern region in the stables at Houghton Hall, Norfolk – left JAMES TURRELL (Lightscape 2015). We have showcased alongside exhibitions by RICHARD LONG (EarthSky 2017), DAMIEN HIRST (Colour Space 2018) and HENRY MOORE (Nature and Inspiration 2019).
LIZ TAUNT is fascinated by patterns. She sees her work as a visual counterpart to the kinds of pattern with which her father grappled in his work as a mathematician. Her prints are made using a variety of techniques to manipulate the conventional elements of abstraction: colour, tone, texture, line and form. She aims to create work that is mysterious, subtle and playful. Liz has works in public and private collections in the UK, Europe and Russia. Having worked as an arts administrator and an art therapist, among other things, she moved from London to Bungay on the Norfolk-Suffolk border.
We have added new paintings to our collection for 2020. Take a look at works from artists from across the eastern region. Each captures the splendour of the natural landscape, the beauty of coastal reaches, open fields, fens and woodland, employing traditional painting techniques in figurative and abstract styles, including oil, watercolours and acrylic paints.
As we move into 2020 we invite you to take another look at the wonderful collections we have put together covering the artforms of painting, print, sculpture, drawing, photography and design for the home.
More to come later this month but we begin with a look at WORKS ON PAPER
For bespoke and handmade unique gift ideas - jewellery, scarves, leather goods, bags, homeware, paintings, prints and beautifully made objects for our loved ones or - heaven forbid - for ourselves!
We are looking forward to 2020 and a relaunch of our pop-up venture with a new name to reflect our vision for the years ahead. CONTEMPORARY AND COUNTRY will display work by contemporary artists and makers who don’t conform to historic assumptions about creativity being a largely metropolitan activity. Through their chosen subject matter they raise questions about what it takes to shift ideas of the rural idyll away from the romantic and remote, toward a variety of more engaging concerns shared by creative practitioners working in geographically isolated communities today.

The designers we showcase include furniture makers like PAR AVION. Our makers create beautiful pieces from decorative furniture, soft furnishings and objects for the home. All use a diverse range of materials, often natural, associated with the eastern region. Including seashells, to hand-turned wood and ceramics, to wool and glass.
Many of the artists we showcase, like Tracey Ross (right) capture the splendor, drama and beauty of coastal reaches, open fields, fens and woodland. All employ traditional painting techniques in figurative and abstract styles, including oil, watercolour and acrylic paints, as well as print and photography.
We have a selection of paintings, prints and drawings as well as jewellery and items for the home like these earrings by MADELEINE SPENCER to suit your budget. Click below for a preview of gift ideas by makers.
Whether you are a collector, a trade professional or an individual looking for a unique piece, we can help you. Any commission made here ensures that you become part of the creative process from day one.
We take the uncertainty out of the process – we set the scope of the project with you, talking through the outcomes to ensure you get your commission on brief, on budget and on time.
