11-15 Fye Bridge Street
Norwich, NR3 1LJ
16 – 28 APRIL 2024

ArtCan is pleased to present Passing Through, an exhibition of eleven ArtCan East Anglia artists.
The artists share the belief that ‘we mark our time here through our experiences and imagination in our work.’ Each artist asks the questions: How do we see? How do we experience the world? How do we interpret our external and internal landscapes?
The exhibition brings artists’ individual responses together to sit side by side from across East Anglia to the Anteros Arts Foundation Gallery in Norwich. The exhibition is located both in the front room and the main gallery for visitors and it is free entry.


EXHIBITION RUN: 16 APRIL – 28 APRIL 2024
Monday – Saturday, 10.00 – 17.00 and Sunday 10.00 – 16.00.
A Meet the Artists takes place on 28th April, 2-4 pm


Participating artists:
Linda Chapman, Jennie Sharman-Cox, Jill Desborough, Liliana Dobbs, Eves Eveson, Rebecca Moss Guyver, Jane Hindmarch, Sarah Milne, Deborah Penfold, Sarah Pooley, Amy Wormald

Then & Now

ArtCan Virtual Gallery

1 Dec 2023 – 1 Feb 2024

Then & Now is an opportunity for artists to reflect on their passage of time as creatives over the past 10 years. To submit work that reminds them, or tells a story, of where they have come from, or where they are confidently now.

Artists are reflections of society – they record the world around them, whether sub-consciously or more determinedly obvious through the visual language they chose to use. 

Then & Now is an exhibition that will celebrate this visual language and in turn acknowledge the passing of time and events that have shaped contemporary artists in today’s society.
