A Dereham gallery has launched a drop-in service for artists and crafts people in the area.

It started on Tuesday at @ The Gallery in Georges Road. The drop-in will be available during gallery opening hours and also, initially, on Tuesday evenings between 4.30pm and 7.30pm.

Judy Thomas, who runs the gallery, said: “We will eventually have some regular evening sessions for “drop in” too.

“The idea is to give local artists an informal place they can just 'drop in' to exchange information, views and ideas or simply chat with other artists.

“We will keep an artist message book where artists can leave information etc for one another.

“The book will be available to all artists and members of the public who would like to contact to an artist or ask for advice etcetera.

“This is to be a totally informal meeting point with no rules or regulations, it is simply to provide a support network for artists and crafts people who feel they would like more contact with other artists and craftspeople, or would like to know who else is working in the area.

“We would like any artists and crafts people who are interested in the idea of the group to “drop in” and make themselves known to the gallery.”

The gallery will also keep a diary of all forthcoming exhibitions in Norfolk as they become aware of them.

Gallery opening hours are Tuesday to Friday 9.30am-4.30pm and Saturday 9.30am-3.30pm.
