PAINT OUT NORWICH 2022

PAINT OUT

This autumn, we are revisiting Norwich and its contrasting medieval streets and modern shops with a specific emphasis on a Nocturne painting festival running Thursday evening through to a Saturday Private View and Sunday exhibition in Cathedral Close, Tombland.

Nocturnes were originally associated with musical compositions evocating the night but the word mutated to the visual arts under Rembrandt’s influence in 17th-century Holland. It has since become common parlance in the Fine Arts, albeit with Whistlerian connotations.

Paint Out has showcased Nocturne painting since we began in 2014. This year’s October event will be primarily focused on the plein air skill of painting as the sun disappears and evening lights appear, perhaps reflecting on damp cobbles, the neon glows of shops and yellowed street lamps.

We are proud to have hosted hundreds of artists, over the last nine years, who have taken up the challenge of painting by night, even at the end of a long day’s art creation. This time, our days will begin at sundown and the evenings will mark the beginning of painting as late night shoppers, drinkers and diners continue to fill the city.

Artists may use LED lights clamped above their boards or seek out the sulphurous glow of the Georgian and Victorian street lamps in the medieval quarter of the city or the night-lit storefronts and hospitality venues around the city’s centre and illuminated lanes.

For the collector and gallery visitor this is a chance to view a selling exhibition of freshly painted works, hot off the easel that bask in the beauty of the city at night from dozens of familiar and unseen vantage points.

Come scrutinize the choice of composition and often innovative use of reduced palette colour or perhaps witness how some artists elicit an almost Hogarthian realism in rendering the nightlife of Norwich’s early twilight hours.

Paint Out will host the Nocturne Paint Out in a marquee on the green outside the Cathedral Hostry.

27-30 OCTOBER
