To all artists, friends, visitors and stewards - sadly in view of the continuing Covid19 pandemic we shall not be opening Halesworth Gallery, Steeple End, for the 2020 season. Unlike galleries with permanent exhibitions or a more commercial status, our gallery operates on a very social basis and we would be unable to keep to the government guidelines on social distancing in order to keep everyone safe and well. Also several of our committee members are vulnerable health wise and would be unable to fulfil their essential roles. We hope you will understand this decision and of course we look forward to resuming the full life of the gallery at the earliest opportunity in the 2021 season should conditions improve.
With all good wishes from Zoé Mair, Chair of Halesworth Gallery Committee.

This exhibition brings together five well loved and world renowned artist/illustrators. The artists either live locally or have strong family ties to the Norfolk/Suffolk area. Their work explores a wide breath of mediums including collage, painting, printmaking and pen and ink. What ties these artist together is their singular ability to tell a story, create an atmosphere and capture our most dreamy meandering thoughts. Come and be transported by an exhibition that is at once fresh and playful but also wildly imaginative and intriguing. A must see for adults and children alike! Find out more about the Meandering Illustration artists here.
