As the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games draws closer, the Norwich Big Screen is hosting an event to celebrate local sport and culture.

As part of this programme, RoaR is proud to present the screening of Amanda Ravetz’s short film ‘Beautiful Colour’ about the creative processes of Barrington Farm Artist, Ian Partridge. Please come and join us and meet the artist.

“Amanda Ravetz’s film follows a natural artist as he draws and brushes, rollers and blots... What is he depicting? Here may be the heads of roses or people and creatures of the Garden of Eden all combining in a patchwork cat. Whatever. Ian Partridge paints the sheer joy of living.” Ian Collins, Arts writer for the Eastern Daily Press

‘Beautiful Colour’ (23 mins) is available to purchase on DVD from RoaR for £10. Please contact us for details.
