ARt Galleries In Norwich
If you’re an art lover then you’ll enjoy your
visit to Norwich as it has a wealth of classical and contemporary
art galleries for you to visit.
The city’s main gallery is at the Norwich Castle
Museum and Art Gallery [map],
which has collections of British fine and decorative art
from the 16th century to the present day.
The regularly undated displays include work by the Norwich School of Artists, John Sell Cotman, Rembrandt
along with Dutch 17th century oils and the world’s
largest collection of British Ceramic teapots.
Also worth a visit is the Norwich Gallery [map] at the Norwich School of Art and Design on Redwell Street,
which has a changing programme of work by living artists,
designers and craft makers. The gallery attracts more
than 40,000 visitors each year and aims to encourage contemporary
art and design education in the region.
For more contemporary works by some of the best
local artists head to Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts
[map] at the University of East Anglia, which also has collections
from the Tate Gallery. Unfortunately, the gallery is closed
for refurbishing work until late 2005 but there are a
number of touring exhibitions taking place around Norwich.
