NIGEL SKINNER ‘From Earth and Dust Again’

17 June to 28 July

A Graduate of Norwich School of Art, Nigel has lived and worked in North Norfolk since 1992.  The underlying theme within his work is the notion of transformation or alchemy, combining elements of the physical world with ideas relating to our collective myths and beliefs.

Drawing on sources such as religion, philosophy, literature, art and that which is described as ancient wisdom or enlightenment, his work is predominantly created from salvaged and recycled materials. Earth, dust and gathered fragments are included as he attempts to achieve a greater understanding of humankind’s engagement with the world we inhabit. The works also allude to a contemporary Norfolk landscape and our spiritual and artistic place within it.

This is a very unusual exhibition which Westacre Theatre is privileged to host.  It is kindly presented in association with Walsingham Gallery and Framing which is a friendly, independent art gallery and bespoke picture framers located in a converted barn in the beautiful village of Great Walsingham.

Exhibiting at Westacre Theatre…

The exhibition space at Westacre Theatre has been extended as part of our ongoing development work. The new spaces include our existing foyer area, new bar, new link and separate new gallery area.  We usually have between two and three different artists exhibiting with us each season. We always aim to give preference to local artists but are happy to exhibit work from further afield.

The Gallery is open at all performance times.

Visitors are very welcome on other weekdays too, but please always check before you intend to visit by calling the Theatre on 01760 755 007 to make certain there will be someone available to open up the spaces.


If you would be interested in having an exhibition here with us then please do get in touch with the Theatre office on 01760 755 007
