People were encouraged to pick up a paintbrush and create art to celebrate the centenary of voting rights for women at a pop-up event in Norwich.
Dress, Paint, Pose like a Suffragist was presented by the Norwich Dandies in the Kastle Kids unit at Castle Mall on Tuesday and Wednesday this week.
The exhibition featured work from local, national and international artists, and there were also drop-in creative arts workshops.
People were invited to dress up as Suffragists and pose as models for others to paint, and also have a go at painting a picture themselves.
The project was supported by the Women’s Vote Centenary Grants Scheme.
Norwich Dandies is also presenting an exhibition called Nasty Women Norwich at the Undercroft from February 10 to 17. The art exhibition - which is linked to the global art movement Nasty Women International - aims to raise money for the domestic abuse charity Leeway.
