‘Still Lives’ – Polly Cruse

An exhibition of still life photography

Polly Cruse is a Norwich based artist. Her work focuses on the everyday and the relationships between the intangible and the material. This current work is centred on the role of found objects, gifts and memorabilia in the making of a home.

‘Still Lives’ is an exhibition of photographs depicting commonplace objects and ornaments in classical still life compositions to emphasise their importance within a personal and private space and to give them status as objects of art.

Supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, and by Norfolk County Council Arts Project Fund.




Friday 15th November 5-7pm

FREE, all welcome. Refreshments provided.

Polly Cruse will give a short talk at 6pm. Visitors at the launch can enter a free prize draw to win a specially-commissioned photograph of their own objects.
