Fenland Lives and Land is a three-year collaborative project celebrating the heritage, landscape and identity of this unique and important region. Led by Norfolk Museums and Archaeology Service, this Heritage Lottery Funded project has seen four exhibitions and a film co-produced by the museums of the Fens Museum Partnership and a wide variety of community groups from across the region.

GALLERY STAMFORD, MAIDEN LANE, STAMFORD
Solo show of British painter Jonathan Meddings from January 12.
Abstraction is the culmination of a years worth of work, dedicated to the investigation of colour, form and rhythm.
Jonathan’s work has a strong sculptural presence to his brushstrokes. Waves and arches are intersected with linear patterns. Forms flicker in and out of the canvas, colours vibrate on the surface.
In 2014 Jonathan had his first solo exhibition at The Pavilion Cafe in Dulwich Park, London. Some of the work from this event is presented here together with a selection of new works. http://www.gallerystamford.co.uk
