Posted: March 31st, 2012 | Author: eastcoastnet | Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: Norfolk Contemporary Art Society | No Comments »
The Norfolk Contemporary Art Society has a new website: www.n-cas.org.uk.
The Norfolk Contemporary Art Society is a charitable association, with some 550 members, which promotes contemporary visual art, particularly that of artists working in the region. Since it was founded, in 1956, to encourage the Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery to acquire work in the modern idiom to balance its fine collections of the nineteenth-century Norwich School of painters, the Society has acquired its own art collection which forms the basis of holdings in post-war art in the Castle.
The NCAS mounts a lively programme of monthly events, mostly in Norwich, which include lectures by artists, critics and art historians, visits, auctions, private views, parties and happenings.
Open Submission Exhibition NCA12
This is a major open selling exhibition of recent paintings, prints, photographs, drawings, textiles, videos and sculpture by artist members of NCAS. There are no constraints on themes or subject matter. The exhibition will be held in The Forum, Norwich from Tuesday 17th July to Thursday 26 July 2012.
Artist members of NCAS are invited to submit images of up to three recent works, completed between 2010 and 2012. Images must be supplied on a CD (preferably in JPEG format, with each image below 2MB). The CD, together with a completed submission form should be sent by post to arrive before 16 April 2012. Please do NOT send original works at this selection stage. Two-dimensional works must not exceed an overall size of 2.0m in height and 2.5 m in width (including frame if present). An illustrated catalogue will be produced.
If you are a local artist who is not a member of NCAS, but who would be keen to submit work to this exhibition, then you can join the society, using the NCAS application form, and then complete a submission form. Both forms can be downloaded from the website at www.n-cas.org.uk

Posted: March 23rd, 2012 | Author: eastcoastnet | Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: Bungay Film Club, Film | No Comments »
PATIENCE (AFTER SEBALD) (12A) will be screened at the Fisher Theatre, Bungay at 7.30 pm on Sunday 15 July 2012. UK 2012. 86 minutes. Director: Grant Gee.
This film essay was inspired by THE RINGS OF SATURN by W.G Sebald (1944-2001). The Norwich-based German-born, writer’s book takes as its starting point a walk around Suffolk, but develops into a discussion of geography, history, culture and time. With contributions from contemporary artists and writers.
“In keeping with the spirit of Sebald’s writing: teasing, elegant and perhaps inevitably unresolved: an invitation as opposed to a destination.” Xan Brooks in The Guardian.
For more information visit www.bungayfilmclub.com.
Bungay Film Club is run by a small group of film enthusiasts. The club shows foreign, independent or classic films once a month at the Fisher Theatre in Bungay, Suffolk. The screening date is usually (but not always) the last Monday of each month. Screenings begin at 7.30pm. Members pay £10 for a year’s membership and £2.50 for each film. Guests are very welcome and pay £5 for each film.
The licensed bar is open for half an hour before each screening and for an indefinite time afterwards, providing a welcome opportunity for members and guests to discuss the evening’s film or simply enjoy a drink together. Drinks may also be taken into the auditorium during a screening. Contact us at email@example.com
