Mike Kelly, on retiring from his art school job in Warwickshire and in 1983 moving to Walberswick in Suffolk, discovered that five of his former fellow students as well as a growing network of other artists, thought of forming a group of professional artists. Following discussions with like-minded artists, the Suffolk Group was formed in 1989, with around 30 professional painters, printmakers and sculptors of local and national repute, living and working in Suffolk. It holds an annual exhibition at the Peter Pears Gallery, Aldeburgh, as well as a further annual exhibition and occasional themed or special exhibition at other galleries in the region.
