New Solo Exhibition: ‘Pop! Goes The Easel’, Norwich Nov ’23
21 November – 4 December 2023 • Kerwin returns to his hometown Norwich to exhibit at the Crypt Gallery once again • Catch his Pop Art music paintings on display
I am very excited to announce my latest solo art exhibition, and my (joint) largest show to date. I’ll be returning to Norwich and to the Crypt Gallery, in ‘Pop! Goes The Easel’, which will run between Tuesday 21 November and Monday 4 December 2023. It will be open to the public for the whole duration, with free entry.
I am looking forward to displaying my large collection of original acrylic pop art music icon paintings – created in my signature Jackson Pollock-inspired style – and my range of merchandise at this show. It will be great to exhibit in the run-up to Christmas and catch the festive buzz.
I previously exhibited at the Crypt Gallery in early 2022, in which I exhibited my entire range of paintings together in public for the first time. Read the story of this exhibition here. Just over eighteen months on I’ll be back in the same venue – which also happens to be on the site of my former school, Norwich School.
What Is The Crypt Gallery?
The Crypt Gallery is situated underneath the Chapel building in The Close, and right next to Norwich Cathedral. This commercial gallery is part of my former school, Norwich School, where I spent 11 years, and is the oldest venue I have exhibited at – having been built over 700 years ago in 1316.
The Crypt Building itself, an architectural gem dating back to the 14th century, exudes an aura of antiquity and grandeur. Originally constructed as part of the adjacent Norwich Cathedral, this centuries-old structure has served various purposes over the years, including as a medieval monastic dormitory and a schoolhouse.
In more recent times, it has been lovingly restored and transformed into a vibrant hub for artistic expression. The Crypt Gallery, housed within its ancient stone walls, is a haven for contemporary art, showcasing a diverse range of exhibitions and installations.
As visitors descend into this captivating space, they are not only greeted by a unique juxtaposition of the old and the new but also an immersive cultural experience that bridges the gap between Norwich School’s storied past and its dynamic present.
My full range of Jackson Pollock-inspired acrylic paintings can be viewed at www.bykerwin.com – the originals and prints of these are available to purchase, with worldwide delivery. You can follow my art progress on Instagram and Facebook.
