Time is running out if you want to visit the exhibition, Silks Sable and Silva, at Greyfriars Art Space in Lynn, featuring the work of three artists in a range of mediums.

It continues today and tomorrow, open daily from 10am to 4pm, displaying constructed textiles by Margaret Kennedy, designs in wood by Keith Swainson and graphic-orientated paintings by Alan Schmidt.

Margaret Kennedy last exhibited her work in the highly successful 2013, Fields of Vision, where her constructed textile work provided a focal-point.

She said: “My recent inspiration is taken from nature and the sea. This year I started a series of quilts, runners and small framed artworks on perspectives in nature, influenced by the North Norfolk landscape.”

Keith Swainson also exhibited in Fields of Vision, and is currently showing at Wing Gallery in East Sussex. He said: “I have always had an affinity for wood – every cut revealing a new vista of creative possibilities.”

Alan Schmidt has a background as an award-winning art director, and has held one-man shows of his paintings in the USA and North Norfolk. He said: “My largely graphic-orientated paintings are an eclectic combination of hand-lettering, art-historical plunder and colourist illustration.”
