2016 marks the 60th anniversary of the founding of the Norfolk Contemporary Art Society. To mark the occasion, and to showcase all the works that the NCAS have helped the Castle to acquire over those years, Norwich Castle will stage an exhibition in the Timothy Gurney Gallery, opening on Saturday 24 September.
Keith Roberts, Chair of NCAS Exhibitions Committee commented: “We are really delighted to be working with the Castle again, this time to celebrate our 60th anniversary by showing almost all the works that we have helped the Castle to acquire to strengthen their holdings in contemporary art. This will be an eye-watering representation of much of the history of post-war contemporary art and it will be enhanced by the simultaneous publication of our new fully-illustrated history of the society.”
Works by the following artists will be included:
Prunella Clough, Graham Sutherland, Keith Vaughan, Bernard Meadows, Alfred Cohen, Peter Lanyon, Maggi Hambling, Howard Hodgkin, John Hoyland, Colin Self, Ruth Ewan, Rosie Snell, Frances Kearney and Mark Edwards.
