Two artists are set to stage their first joint exhibition in Bungay that features artworks celebrating nature and exploring fascinating landscapes.

Paul and Ally Zawadzki, both based in Bungay, will showcase their latest pieces at The Bell Gallery from August 19 to August 31 in an exhibit called Paz y Amor (Peace and Love).

The artists share a common approach in their craft, echoing the theme of 'embracing the happy accident'.

They utilise materials like cement, recycled fabric, distressed canvas and even occasional fire to capture the spirit and texture of landscapes around them.

Mr Zawadzki often draws inspiration from his personal love for the beauty of Covehithe and Dunwich on the North Suffolk coast.

His four-decade-long passion for traditional oil painting sees a particular focus in his exhibited works.

Mr Zawadzki said: “We are both really excited to be showing our work together for the first time at the Bell Gallery.

"It’s a fantastic space and this is the perfect opportunity to publicly launch Ally’s body of paintings and sculptures, alongside many of my new pieces."

In addition to the exhibition, a private view event will be hosted on Tuesday, August 20 from 5pm, with Beccles-based poet and singer Lynne Nesbit offering performances of poems written in response to specific pieces of artwork on showcase.

The trio find inspiration in each other's creativity which contributes to their continuous innovation in their respective fields.

"Having Lynne Nesbit as our special guest at the opening on Tuesday is going to be a unique event so we’re looking forward to that too”, Mr Zawadzki added.

Both artists are engaged in the Norfolk and Norwich Art Circle, with Mr Zawadzki, born in Ditchingham, serving as the chairman while Surrey-born mrs Zawadzki serves as vice chair.

Aside from local exhibits, Mr Zawadzki has his works held in private collections globally and has been featured in art shows in Venice, New York, Paris and London.
