Boswell's Norfolk

This coming Friday sees the opening of an exhibition which epitomises summer here on Norfolk's north coast. Beaches, boats and families all depicted by one of Norfolk's own - Patrick Boswell. Paintings with verve and elan, yet with almost pedantic attention to detail reflecting the man wielding the brush - equally at ease with his boat as with his art, and always with his characterful style.

A firm favourite with North Norfolk's summer crowds - be they resident or on their annual pilgrimage to Brancaster or Holkham - this is the first time he will have shown with us in Burnham having previously exhibited at Norwich Grapevine many moons ago.

Unsurprisingly, they feel just right for the time of year.  For just these few weeks, the Norfolk world fizzes and bubbles with an endless flow of parties, music, food - all with friends and family - and always with the backdrop of sea and sky. The roads are busy, the parking absurd, the vehicles supersized and yet move just a few yards from the pinchpoints and the hotspots and there is the real Norfolk - space and beauty to dream about. You can see why 'they' all continue to come.

As with all things Summer, be they holidays, fine weather or exhibitions, Patrick's personal view of North Norfolk is on show for all too short a time - just two weeks - running until 22nd of August.
