A team of artists is keeping it in the family for their latest exhibition which sees a mother, father and daughter showing their work alongside each other.

Mixing Up the Marks will open at the Dragonfly Centre in Watton on Friday and features the work of established textile artists Jill Arnold and Marion Barnett.

But, in a bid to broaden the exhibition's scope, the pair are joining forces with several photographers to bring a new element to the show.

Mrs Arnold said: “I intended to have an exhibition with Marion, who is a fellow textile artist and painter, and when we set the theme we decided that it would be a good thing to widen the scope.

“My daughter, Rosemary, is studying for an MA in photography at Norwich School of Art and Design and so she was an obvious choice.

“My husband, Ray, is also a keen photographer and he will have work in the exhibition along with fellow photographer Derek Roberts.”

Mrs Arnold said that what links the five artists is a passion for finding and recording “marks”, whether they are naturally occurring or man-made.

The exhibition takes place at the Dragonfly Centre, Watton, from October 24 to November 1. It is open daily from 10am to 4pm, except Saturday when it is open 10am to 1pm and Sunday when it is closed.
