A second show to celebrate the influence of Harry Becker on East Anglian artists working today, there will be 90 pieces of work by up to 30 artists, there will also be a new book by Alan Marshall called Blyth Spirit that features many of the participating artists, the book costs just £10 Part of the proceeds from the show will go to a regeneration project fund that will benefit churches in Halesworth Parish.

Most of my sketching is done within a ten mile radius of where I live (in Middleton on the Suffolk Coast) I have favourite places that I return to time and again, such as Dunwich Heath, Minsmere Reserve, Sizewell Beach and Westleton Heath. The flora and fauna, the earth beneath my feet, the power station are all good subjects to me. My work is essentially about where I live and what I do, the things that I see and experience as I walk the dog, the wild animals around me and the domestic animals I keep on a meadow in the village.
