The Stone Eye Group was a group of Suffolk artists which spent a year trying to capture an important landscape in paint and sculpture. They worked at the Orford Ness shingle spit which was a restricted military testing area for most of the 20th century which the National Trust opened to the public in 1995. The artists' group was made up of John Barker, Joan Hodes, Heather Hodgson, Ali Hollingsworth, Martin Laurance and Katharine Roney and they spent over a year sketching and painting on what locals' call "The Island", although it is connected to the mainland at Aldeburgh where an exhibition was held in November 2009. Some of artists show at the following Suffolk galleries: John Russell Gallery in Ipswich, Aldeburgh Contemporary Arts, Re+New in Woodbridge.
