JOINT EXHIBITION AT THE NEW CROMER ARTSPACE

LOOKING NORTH Liz James and Ros Copping

Cromer Artspace on the Prom is a project to create an artspace in an ‘art deco’ building on the west promenade in Cromer. This is a real opportunity to bring an unused heritage building into community use, creating a unique destination for North Norfolk. This is an iconic building with a superb location which will attract a high calibre of national and international artists, of interest throughout the region.


The building has been empty since the tidal surge at the end of 2013 so needs some love and attention to enable us to use it all year round, and to improve the access which currently involves a set of steep steps. While the plans for the major works are developed, put through the planning process, and the necessary funds for the work raised we have opened the gallery in it’s rustic state. It’s still an amazing space in an amazing location.

Please consider supporting the project by donating via our just giving campaign.

To find Artspace on the Prom, on the promenade in Cromer walk to the far west end (that’s left at the bottom of any slope or steps).  The nearest car park is the Runton Road carpark.  Disabled parking is at the bottom of the Melbourne slope.

About Norfolk Wildlife Trust

Norfolk Wildlife Trust is the oldest Wildlife Trust in the country. The purchase of 400 acres of marsh at Cley on the north Norfolk coast in 1926 to be held ‘in perpetuity as a bird breeding sanctuary’ provided a blueprint for nature conservation which has now been replicated across the UK.

Exploring the world of Digital Media 

Something completely different for me… my first venture into the digital world of NFT’s.

Sunday Sunrise is a fusion of watercolour painting and source photograph digitally altered to enhance the colours.

I was interested to see how a more traditional artwork form would combine with digital media to create a new unique image. Very surprised to see how close my painting was to the photograph which was completely unintentional.

What is an NFT?

NFT stands for Non-Fungible tokens, these are a form of unique digital asset that exist on the

blockchain. Anything can be minted into an NFT – artwork, digital films, games.
