Colchester's dramatic new visual art gallery, firstsite,designed by Rafael Viñoly and costing £28m, hasopened on one of the most ancient sites discovered inthe oldest English town. The centrepiece of the newgallery is the restored Berryfield Mosaic, dating fromaround AD200 and unearthed in 1923, a few feet fromwhere it now sits.Plans for the new building, settled in the curve of thetown's Roman wall, began as long ago as 1994 withthe appointment of Director Kath Wood, in a missionto connect with the local community, artists and artlovers in East Anglia, and artists the world over.Among the artists exhibited are such internationallyacclaimed names as Louise Bourgeois (1996), AntonyGormley (1999), Bridget Riley (2002), Yoko Ono(2003), and Mark Dion (2005). "So much more than a beautiful gallery attracting artlovers from all over the country," said Kath Wood, "Ibelieve firstsite will be at an important intersectionbetween the community and artists, providinginspiration and encouragement to everyone to explore,create, relax and have fun."10NADFAS REVIEW / WINTER 2011www.nadfas.org.ukARTS NEWSArts NewsArts and heritage updates from around the country.
