Lowestoft visual artists known as the collective Easterly Artists are hosting another exciting pop-up art exhibition titled “Letting in the Light”.

It addresses how artists use light, how it behaves, how it can be altered, and how it affects both the artist’s perspective on what he or she is creating and the viewer’s perception of it.

“Letting in the Light” will be on display at 5-7 St Peter’s Street, Triangle Market, Lowestoft NR32 1QA, from Friday, September 9th to Sunday, September 18th, from 10 am to 5 pm. It is free to enter.
