January: The Soul Cafe
The Soul Cafe is a new addition to the Kings Lynn foodie scene. They sell authentic, freshly made food, fine wines and cocktails.
“The Soul Café & Restaurant is the brainchild of chef Olivier Vati and his paediatrician partner, Helen Payne. Olivier is originally from the French Caribbean paradise of Guadeloupe, while Helen is a Norfolk girl born and bred – a combination of cultures that is perfectly reflected in the fusion cuisine that is the Soul Café & Restaurant’s trademark.” – Taken from the restaurant’s website
Each month they have started featuring a different Artist on their walls. During January they featured our very own James Sparshatt.
James had this to say about the experience:
“It was great to branch out and exhibit in the West of Norfolk. We haven’t exhibited out that way very much so it was a nice way to meet local Artists and make some new connections. It was lovely to collaborate with a space like that.”
It was a great opportunity to reach a new community with James’ work. Local Cafe’s and Restaurants who support local artists keep the local arts scene bright and interesting. It also helps people who may not have been to many art galleries before to experience new kinds of art themselves. Initiatives to bring art into communities like these should always be supported and we were so happy to be involved.
Thank you to the Soul Cafe for having us!
