Art group's work put on display at Morrisons in Diss




A selection of art pieces created by members of an art group during lockdown have gone on display in a Diss supermarket.

During lockdown, around a dozen people created Art for All – a community art class held on Zoom, headed by textile artist Julie Filmer.

Now, the collages, abstract paintings and other drawings made by students have been put on a special display inside Morrisons supermarket in Victoria Road.

“The display is there to demonstrate all of the work that we produced during lockdown,” said Pam Spicer, one of the group’s founders and a volunteer at Better Together Norfolk.

“Being in the group really gave people that human connection each week that we needed at the time, and now it’s fantastic to have that art on display.

“It’s great for us, and it gives people something nice to look at when they are out doing their shopping.”
