A new exhibition is set to make its mark at a popular Lowestoft-area gallery.

Members of Easterly Artists will be hitting the target as their new winter exhibition - entitled Making Our Mark - is showcased over the festive season at the Ferini Art Gallery in Pakefield.

The new show opens on November 5, and will run over Christmas until January 9 at the gallery on All Saints Road, Pakefield.

The Easterly Artists members "have been cleaning their brushes, wetting their pottery wheels and sharpening their chisels" for the exhibition.

And with the group having grown in numbers recently, a record 24 artists will be presenting their interpretations of the theme in "an awe-inspiring variety of mediums" - which will range from painting in oil and acrylics, screenprint, mixed media collage, digital illustration and ceramics to lesser well-known art forms.

Miles Barry, Easterly Artists chairman, said: “There’s a ‘buzz’ building in Lowestoft: the work starting on the Gull Wing bridge, the funds and effort going into the Heritage Action Zones, the sea defence investment to increase the town’s attractiveness for business, Banksy’s recent Spraycation tour… there’s a sense of something starting to happen.

"It’s good to feel part of that and to be able, in our own way, to contribute to its momentum.”
