Have your say

Narrative, an exhibition of works by Cambridge Creative Network artists, is an exciting mixed show featuring a selection of artists from the Cambridge Creative Network.

Each artist has their own unique identity and passion for their craft, which is evident in the quality of the work that will be on display at the Highwaymans Gallery, in Risby, near Bury St Edmunds.

Come and meet the artists for the Private View on Friday, July 4, where guests will be welcomed from 7pm with a glass of wine, and a first glimpse of the artworks on offer by this talented group.

Artists showing at this event are:

Karen Jinks - painting and collage

Mandy Knapp - printmaking

Carmel Campbell -printmaking

Rachel Thompson - illustration

Sue Rapley - paintings

Celia Bartlett - photography

Wendy Bohme - printmaking

Alan Rogerson - illustrated things

Maureen Charles - glass

Abi Stevens - illustration

Sophie Hill - painting

Stella Pereira - chef and illustrator

Susan Abbs - paintings

Karen Stamper - collage artist

Roxana de Rond - illustration

All the artists have to be selected to show with the Cambridge Creative Network, which means the exhibition will have works of great quality, but with a different approach by each artist. The theme of the show is Narrative, so you will notice that the works will perhaps have their own story, and some will incorporate the written word.

The exhibition runs from July 4-31 from 10am-3.30pm (the gallery is closed Mondays and Tuesdays). For directions please visit


The gallery is holding a family for an arts and crafts day on Saturday, July 12. The Highwaymans Gallery is set in rural Suffolk and sits in very pleasant grounds and surrounding the property is a tree walk, where you can discover the woodland creatures made by some of the artists. Follow the trail, and discover some fairy folk, strange goblins and elves, and an insect or two. Record your findings and your efforts will be rewarded with a little prize.

There will be storytelling beneath the boughs of the trees, with tales of fairy folk.

There will also be arts and crafts workshops for you to make and take home a creature of your own.

Parents and carers go free, and there is a charge of £2.50 per child to cover material costs.

Bring a picnic and join in the fun!
