John Patchett’s distinctive pastel paintings have been exhibited as far and wide as Japan and New Zealand, whilst they have also been hosted by the Institute of East Anglian Artists and London’s Mall Galleries.

And now, Mr Patchett’s collection of recent paintings, entitled “Drawn by the Light”, will be available to view at The Forum from August 8 to 12.

His latest art bears the distinctive spontaneity, movement and colour that has made his work much sought-after.

The bustle of Norwich market place, beach scenes, harbour locations and glorious gardens are all included in this latest solo exhibition.
