Art exhibition in Norwich explores and celebrates our relationship with trees. Features the work of around 40 artists, many Norfolk-based. It will feature paintings, sculpture, photography and digital works that celebrate the beauty and meaning of trees - and our link with them.

Free entry.

Open daily 10am - 4pm. Except Monday 1 Nov and Sunday 7 Nov when exhibition will be open 12-noon to 4pm.

Artists exhibiting in the show include nationally-known painter Derrick Greaves, and Ivy Smith, winner of several awards including the John Player Portrait award; also Tor Falcon, who recently had a solo show about Norfolk countryside at the Castle Museum; also four members of the nationally known Arborealist Group, plus many established painters, sculptors and photographers from Norfolk and elsewhere.

The exhibition will also include art-work from children to mark the importance of trees in their future lives. ' As future custodians of the planet, children are an integral part of the event' says Caroline. There will also be poems to accompany the show, some by young people and one written especially for the event by acclaimed poet George Szirtes.

Organisers are compiling a tree trail of Norwich as part of the event - encouraging visitors to take time to look at some of the most important and historic trees in the City, such as the the plane trees outside The Guildhall and in Elm Hill, the ancient oak in UEA park and the famous Kett's Oak, near Hethersett.

Norwich is estimated to have around 750,000 trees growing in parks, woods, school grounds, hospitals, cemeteries, industrial and commercial zones and streets. It is hoped the exhibition will focus closer attention on some of them. It's so interesting to think that many of the City's trees are hundreds of years old - old enough to have silently witnessed many events that have threatened or enlivened Norwich in years gone by.
