The National Gallery Collection

From Caravaggio to Zurbarán, Monet to Manet and van Gogh to van Huysum, this exciting new exhibition in collaboration with the National Gallery brings life-sized reproductions to the streets of Cromer, providing visitors with a multiplicity of photo opportunities other than the iconic pier. This exhibition is a follow-on from the Bigger Picture which brought an outside exhibition to Cromer during the lockdowns.

Cromer wants more art and an exhibition space

A huge thanks to the almost 200 people took part in the Summer 2021 Cromer Artspace survey between July and October 2021. There was a real feeling that, whilst there is an undercurrent of art in Cromer, things could and should be improved.

Cromer Artspace research

Research Project

In 2020 Cromer Artspace commissioned a research project which investigated how other towns have developed high quality, innovative and contemporary public art – opening opportunities on a world scale for participation and understanding.

Interviews were undertaken with interested locals, arts professionals, innovators and grant giving bodies. The resultant report has enabled us to plan and formulate ideas for future possibilities which would be suitable for Cromer.

Cromer Lockdown Views

Cromer Lockdown Views Project

Cromer Artspace offered an opportunity for all-comers to be creative and to use Lockdown Isolation as subject matter. More than 40 people took part, from professional artists to total beginners and the project grew to become an online gallery of paintings, photographs, 3D works, films and poetry. A further 16 moving and energetic entries came from school groups, all reflecting the mood of Cromer during Covid19.

Two A3 sized posters were produced, and each entrant received copies. More were posted around town and are on sale through our website
