Landscape art gallery at West Norfolk resident’s property




An art gallery featuring landscape paintings of Norfolk is being housed in a converted shed in a Fincham resident’s garden.

Brenda Brown’s Green Dot Gallery features art from Mrs Brown, who gained her art degree from the College of West Anglia, as well as Joy Layton, Jo Rolfe, Mary Houghton and Janet Wheeler.

Mrs Brown intends to open her gallery from May until October, which will “almost certainly” be on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

She said: “I used to run one in the village but it closed for family reasons.

“Having done Art in the Garden for 30 years, I sort of missed it, so I had a shed erected and turned it into a little gallery.

“Until June 9, it will be primarily my own work. It’s very much based on Norfolk as the landscape is just wonderful. There is a huge wealth of heritage in this county.

“The work I have got appeals to people across the board.

“I have gathered so much work and wanted to have it all in one space.”

Hundreds of people flocked to Mrs Brown’s property when she first staged her Art in the Garden in 2009.

Having shown sculptural work in the past, Mrs Brown said her new gallery is “painting-based.”

Mrs Brown said a feature wall will display the work of another artist each month and there will also be workshops.

The Green Dot Gallery can be found at St Mary’s Lodge on the High Street in Fincham.

It was opened at the beginning of May, but Mrs Brown said it is still “very early days with it”.

“There will be boards outside with bunting up so it will be easy to find,” Mrs Brown added.

The gallery will be open on June 1, 2, 8 and 9 initially as well as this weekend from 10am to 4pm

She said the gallery is a bespoke building, a 15x15ft sectional space fitted out as a gallery.

Work from members of the West Norfolk Artist Association will be included. The Association was set up in October, 2000.
