Diss Express cartoonist Mike Webb to open exhibition
Popular Diss Express cartoonist Mike Webb will display a collection of his tongue-in-cheek paintings in an upcoming exhibition.
The 76-year-old creator of Mere Quacks is showcasing more than 35 works at Diss Corn Hall from December 7 until January 21.
“I am really looking forward to the exhibition,” said Mr Webb, who lives on Denmark Hill in Palgrave.
“I’ve got a soft spot for two of the paintings that will be displayed and it will be interesting how they are received, seeing as they haven’t featured in an exhibition before.”
Some of his Mere Quacks cartoons will be included in the exhibition, along with cartoon paintings, which put a twist on rural everyday life and with references to Diss, watercolours and new work.
After a career in silkscreen printing and design, Mike became a full-time artist in 1980. By then, he had been producing the weekly Mere Quacks cartoon in the Express for seven years and continues to do so.
The exhibition promises to be light-hearted, fun and an opportunity to be the owner of an original Mike Webb. Join him on December 7 at 5pm as he opens the exhibition.
