This year, we will be showing an extraordinary selection of work in The Gallery at The Cut. The collection is from twelve, hugely talented artists who are drawn together by East Anglia, their work and mediums, much of which is INK! The Gallery will be a tranquil space during the Festival to have a coffee, contemplate the art and reflect on the amazing performances going on throughout the building. All the art will be for sale.

Trevor Price

This collection of stunning new prints are handmade and printed from Trevor’s studios in St. Ives and Bermondsey. He is a member of the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers, his work is in collections which include the V & A Museum, the Ashmolean Museum, as well as abroad.


Roger Hardy

Roger works on figurative constructions and sculpture using found elements and worn wood from local boatyards, the river Alde and it’s estuary. His work gives back life and soul in the form of the human figure, revealing the layers of history and life it once had. His stunning bronze pieces are amazingly serene and thought provoking of journeys past and yet to come.


Melanie Goemans

Melanie’s work is a response to her environment, she is interested in the overlooked and incidental forms in nature. She studies complicated shapes and draws them with a very fine brush. Her paintings almost look like stitching or weaving, extraordinarily fragile and gentle work. Melanie exhibits throughout the country.


Sam Foley

Sam is a graphic designer and artist, his remarkable prints are produced in small editions and focus on telling a story in a handful of words, they are succinct, leaving it to the audience to interpret and often romanticise. His latest work are unique pieces using hand etched glass and 19th century maps – love lost amidst migration.


Dina Southwell

Dina studied fine art at the Slade in the 1980’s and has been painting and teaching art since. She works from her extraordinary studio overlooking the river Stour, and from where she has produced this astonishing, colourful selection of abstract collages for the show, all inspired by stage performances.


Christian Aldridge

Christian who trained at the Slade has produced a number of stunning, large ink drawings on beautiful japanese paper for this show, as well as some beautiful coloured work on canvas of abstract forms combining together to form Matisse like works. He teaches art at The University of Suffolk.


Sally McKay

Sally’s work embodies fleeting moments and the extraordinary achievement of the human body, a continuation of the energy projected from dancers and performers, their traces of movement, leaving something of a trace behind. She has work in the V & A Archive and contributed to the art sale for Grenfell.


Caroline Atkins

Caroline works predominantly in oil on board capturing moments in time with her still life and  figurative work. She has shown at the Royal Academy’s Summer Show, The Mall Gallery in London and is a long standing member of The Chelsea Arts Society.
