Star Wars Art Director donates work for charity sale Star Wars Art Director Alan Tomkins is the latest celebrity to donate an amazing work of art for the Art for Action sale in aid of children’s charity Action Medical Research. Stars including Anneka Rice, Dame Ellen MacArthur and Maggi Hambling CBE are among those creating 5” x 8” artworks to be sold on Thursday, October 15th. Pieces by writer Esther Freud, journalist Libby Purves and best-selling crime writer Peter James will also be displayed at Copdock Hall in Ipswich, each priced at £30, and collectors can snap up as many works of art as they like: each card will be signed on the reverse so buyers will not know whose work they have bought until they have made their purchase. Tomkins, who was nominated for an Oscar for his work on The Empire Strikes Back, has given organisers a signed print of the original designs for his snowspeeder which featured in the hit 1980 movie. Tickets priced at £20 are selling fast for the Art for Action sale, which takes place from 6.30pm until 9pm. Fizz and canapés will be served, and a donations bar will offer beers and wine. 8 |

Artist Profile: Martin Sexton Sheringham-based artist Martin Sexton has just finished a large landscape painting of the harvest at Gressenhall. As he talks about his work, you can feel his passion for what he does. 'I really enjoyed painting the horses and each blade of straw,' he smiles. 'The painting has a warm summery feel to it that reminds me of harvest time as a child.' Growing up, Martin discovered early on that he loved to draw. 'I used pen or pencil and spent hours sketching the countryside or creating pictures of cowboys, indians and horses,' recalls Martin.
'I decided to focus on watercolour because I felt that if I could manage that, I could paint in anything,' says Martin. 'It wasn't long before I fell in love with the medium and my paintings went from strength to strength. There's nothing better than the feeling you get when you sit down with a clean sheet of paper and you pick up your paintbrush for the first time.' At first Martin struggled to find inspiration but it wasn't long before he began to spot potential all around him. 'Now everything I see inspires me,' laughs Martin. 'I love the Norfolk landscape - the salt marshes, the open skies, the reflections you find in muddy creeks. Martin has a studio at home in Sheringham which doubles up
He was often joined by local lad John Jackson who went on to became a prestigious artists whose linocuts are legendary. 'John and I met at school in Briston, Norfolk where we grew up,' says Martin. 'I can remember the two of us getting together to make and decorate a crown for the local village beauty queen competition.' As the years passed, Martin was to follow John - who is two years his senior - to Norwich School of Art where the two men shared ideas and swapped advice. 'After college we even ended up working together as graphic designers at Boulton & Paul in Norwich,' says Martin. After leaving Boulton & Paul, Martin worked at Eastern Counties Newspapers before finally becoming senior designer at Jarrold's. But as the years passed, Martin began to miss painting. Eventually he decided to dip his toe in the water of traditional painting while also becoming freelance as a designer for Jarrold's to ensure the bills would still be paid.
as a gallery. Visitors are encouraged to come and view his paintings and also watch him work. 'I'm more than happy for people to watch and learn from me,' says Martin. 'I often wish I could have sat and looked over someone's shoulder when I was younger and I'm happy to pass on what I've learnt.' Martin also gives talks at various art groups and tutors small groups of two or three artists.'I like to teach small classes and have the time to focus on each individual artist,' says Martin. 'Sometimes I teach in my studio or we go out and about painting what we see.' Martin is available for commissions. His gallery includes original paintings, prints, cards and calendars and is well worth a visit.

The business officially opens on November 26th, but they are more than happy for anyone to come in whilst they’re preparing their workshop and showroom space.

‘I believe every business should have a unique selling point.’ says Rachel ‘Ours is deep buttoning, and the more exotic the fabric and style of button, the better! Proper buttoning is hard to come by now and everyone will have seen the mass produced, cheap, buttoned-back chairs and sofas that are churned out by a multitude of online retailers. Bespoke, hand-crafted, buttoning is well worth investing in and, when done properly, lasts for years.’ Anyone interested in doing a course, wanting a treasured piece re-upholstered or simply wanting some interiors inspiration, pop in - the showroom is open Wednesday to Saturday 10-5, workshop open Monday to Saturday 10-5.

'Brought up on the east coast of Norfolk, in Gorleston, and now living in Ormesby St. Margaret on the edge of the Norfolk Broads, many of the images I capture are influenced by the Norfolk Broads and the near 100 miles coastline of Norfolk,' says Stephen.

With the most famous Scottish music duo The Proclaimers coming to our region, we caught up with one half of the duo, Charlie Reid, about their latest tour.
Coffee & aChat
CoďŹ€ee & a Chat
With an incredible 30 festivals under their belt this summer alone, The Proclaimers are working as hard as they ever have. 'There are so many festivals now,' says Charlie. 'We love playing them as it gives us a chance to perform to people who may not know many of our songs and we have to try to win them over. It's a chance to find new fans and replenish the amazing fan base we've already got. There's a strong sing-along element to what we do and that works really well at festivals. One such festival was this year's Cambridge Folk Festival. 'Cambridge is one of my favourite folk festivals that we've played anywhere in the world,' says Charlie.'I love the integrity of the people who run it and the audience are fantastic.' But with the festival season behind them, The Proclaimers are now embarking on a nationwide theatre tour and will be playing at Ipswich Regent, Cambridge Corn Exchange and King's Lynn Corn Exchange in November. It's a chance for dedicated fans up and down the country to see them play live. The tour also ties in with the release of their 10th studio album Let's Hear it for the Dogs.
'At first when we heard that a Proclaimers musical has been suggested, we couldn't imagine how it would work and we were very sceptical,' says Charlie. 'But when we saw it, it made sense immediately and it was very moving. Stephen really understands what the band is about and the songs work brilliantly.' A critically-acclaimed film of the musical was also released in 2013. For now, you can catch The Proclaimers at a venue local to you in November. 'We're really looking forward to the shows,' says Charlie. 'We love performing and hearing the crowd singing our songs back to us.'
'This is actually one of the more straight-forward records we've ever made,' says Charlie. 'The band just set up and we played and it was done and dusted in about twelve days. There were hardly any changes to be made and roughly 80% of what you hear was done live.' Recent years has also seen the success of Sunshine on Leith - a Proclaimers musical - written by Stephen Greenhorn. It follows the stories of two men who have to re-learn how to live life in Edinburgh after serving in Afghanistan. Songs by The Proclaimers form the soundtrack.
The Proclaimers are performing at Ipswich Regent (November 1st), Cambridge Corn Exchange (November 4th) and King's Lynn Corn Exchange (November 6th.) www.proclaimers.co.uk

Curiouser and Curiouser… One of the nation’s best loved stories, Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, celebrates its 150th birthday this year. The Co-op Juniors Theatre Company has adapted Carroll’s flight of imagination into a Christmas Spectacular featuring a cast of over 100 young performers and a host of stage magic and illusions - all in a major new musical production at Snape Maltings Concert Hall in Suffolk from December 4th to 13th. Projections, a huge stage lift and specially created stage sets are all planned to make this the most ambitious amateur production staged at the world-famous Concert Hall, home of the Aldeburgh Festival and Proms.
Hatter, The Queen of Hearts, The White Rabbit and Cheshire Cat all appear in this new song and dance epic with soaring musical numbers and a generous sprinkling of eye-popping special effects. 'There are a number of new versions of Alice in Wonderland in this celebratory year,' says director Rebecca Darcy. 'We wanted to develop an exciting new musical version which plays to the strengths of the Co-op Juniors in music and dance yet stays faithful to the spirit of Lewis Carroll’s wonderful book and characters.'

For the love of Southwold As well as being their favourite place, Southwold has played an important part in a number of books created by Alan and Marion Marshall of Norfolk-based Mascot Media. Their collaboration with local artist Mary Gundry to produce the extremely popular ‘Drawn to Southwold’ is the most obvious success, but the seaside town also stars in the earlier Glynn Thomas book ‘East Anglia – A Different Perspective’ and makes several appearances in the Margaret Glass collection ‘Light Through Glass’.
To be published shortly by the company is ‘Landmarks – The East Anglian Art of Robert Chaplin’. An entire section of the new book is devoted to Southwold’s pier, lighthouse, beach huts and other familiar subjects – interpreted in a very different way through the artist’s highly individual use of line and colour.
ARTSeast has teamed up with Mascot Media to offer one lucky reader the chance to win a copy of their book Drawn to Southwold, Mary Gundry: Portrait of a Suffolk Artist. To enter, just email your name, address and telephone number to email@example.com.
Given the love affair between artists and this Suffolk coastal gem, Southwold seems certain to continue making its presence
