Join Emrys Parry for drinks to celebrate the opening of his exhibition. Sat 5 Oct 12pm–4pm Exhibition continues until 26 Oct 2019.
Emrys Parry is an artist living and working in Great Yarmouth returning regularly to Wales to draw and make notes, which are developed further in the studio. Born in 1941 he grew up on the Llŷn Peninsula, which has a strong influence on his work. He taught for over thirty years at Great Yarmouth College of Art and Design and Norwich School of Art and Design and retired from teaching in 1997 to work full time as an artist. Emrys specialises in drawing and paintings, which explore the mystery lurking behind the outward appearance of the landscape of his childhood.
‘Emrys’s work is underpinned by his outstanding observational drawings, often in charcoal, that fill his many sketchbooks to bursting point. These are the rich sources for the motifs that he later develops in the carefully constructed paintings. His is a serious body of work, totally devoid of the nostalgia that could have invaded it, work that will repay careful looking.’
