Thorpe Market churchyard in rural North Norfolk is now a mecca for visitors both local, national and international. In 2017 over the four weekends in February the snowdrops attracted over 1000 visitors, including a coach load of Dutch visitors, who came, saw and experienced the welcoming signs of spring and the warm embrace of those who volunteer at the church to support the event.
As with last year, this year the church will also host 4 local artists, each exhibiting their work so that returning visitors will see new work on the walls, all of which will be on sale.
The artists are:
Sunday 4th Feb. Gillian Eustace
Gillian is a Norfolk artist inspired by the local landscapes, Broadland and coastal views, resulting in watercolour, pen and wash and acrylic paintings and scenic and nostalgic cards. Her work is widely collected from Aukland, New Zealand to the United States.
