Local artists are being given the chance by King’s Lynn Arts Centre to take part in the Bigger Picture 3.

Running for the third time, the Bigger Picture is a collaborative project which brings together the talents of 70 artists to recreate a mystery King’s Lynn painting.

Opening on Saturday, September 26 and running until the end of October, this five week exhibition brings together communities of local artists and highlights the artistic talent within the area for one large scale collaborative work of art.

Amber Lawrence, cultural education officer, at King’s Lynn Arts Centre Trust said: “Contributing artists will be given a small piece of plywood and an up-scaled colour photocopy of a section of a secret painting.

“Artists should then replicate the section to the best of their ability using acrylic paint and return the piece to King’s Lynn Arts Centre. Once all the sections are returned they will be pieced together and exhibited with the original local masterpiece, ready for the grand reveal at the opening.

“Alongside this year’s Bigger Picture 3 we will be exhibiting a retrospective of the two earlier Bigger Pictures, together with their coinciding artworks.

“To take part in this exhibition we are requesting a minimum donation of £3 to contribute towards the cost of materials and administration.”

Registration forms can be collected from the King’s Lynn Arts Centre office or can be requested by contacting Amber Lawrence via amber.lawrence@kingslynnarts.co.uk.

Once registered, artists will be informed of the dates to collect their allocated section and board, or they can be posted for an additional £1.
