Cley 12 Art Group – sculptures on Cley beach

The Cley 12 association of local artists is staging an exhibition at St Margaret’s Church in Cley-next-the-Sea between the 5th July and the 5th August.  It does not stop there, however, as some large sculptures are installed on Cley beach.

To reflect the locations the exhibition is entitled  Aisle and Air.  Curator Isabel Vasseur stated: “In this way “Aisle and Air” will demonstrate that art within public spaces has a unique and historic role illustrating the ever present creativity of all people at all times and all places and not just in galleries. On this special annual arts occasion in North Norfolk the art will have few walls but great ambition in both Aisle and Air.”

I suggest that you first visit Cley church and then make for the beach to view these interesting structures.
