9 September – 31 October 2006 The final exhibition of the 2006 season at the Naze Tower has an autumnal feel with an exploration of landscapes and the natural environment by seven artists from East Anglia.
Gillian Plummer’s stunning up close photography of flora and fauna, John Barker’s large colourful canvases convey a feeling or place from memory, Colin Slee’s expressive pastels are a response to natural environments he has an affinity with, Marianne Koby Johnson’s sea and landscapes in oils are also atmospheric. Also on show are Robert Steerwood’s engaging abstracts on distressed canvases influenced by geology and archaeology, Dawn Hall's paintings and prints inspired by the locality; the beautiful coastline, colourful beach huts and haunting Backwaters and Pascale Penfold who uses clay and glass to recreate light, texture and movement from nature.

The Naze Tower is a truly unique visitor attraction located on an attractive stretch of coastline at The Naze, Walton-on-the-Naze, Essex. This impressive 86ft octagonal tower, constructed in 1720 by Trinity House as a navigational mark to aid shipping, is Grade II* listed for unusual architectural interest. Recent research has revealed it to be the only one of its kind and era in existence.
