Cley 15: Marvellous in Ordinary

Cley 15: Marvellous in Ordinary
is chosen by this year's guest curator, the wonderful Meryl Doney.

Cley 15 is an open submission contemporary art exhibition in and around the village of Cley-next-the-Sea in North Norfolk

The exhibition will be open daily 10am-5.30pm from Thursday 2 July to Sunday 2 August 2015,showing work by 52 artists including paintings, sculptures, textiles, ceramics and installations in five locations: St Margaret's Church, the beach, Norfolk Wildlife Trust Visitor Centre, Crabpot Bookshop and Cley Windmill on the coast road

Cley 15 is a unique opportunity for Norfolk-based artists to make and exhibit site-specific work and for visitors to see new, and original work set in the fabulous landscape of the North Norfolk marshes and coastline.

The title Marvellous in Ordinary was taken from a description of the work of the late, great Margaret Mellis. Her driftwood collages are the primary inspiration for the title – though it also carries more ancient echoes of George Herbert’s 17th century poem Prayer (I). Mellis died in 2009, but one of her iconic works - Bogman - is able to be presented in the church.
