The 15 students from the Arts Practice course run by University Campus Suffolk (UCS) took over 133 Gallery in King Street with their colourful, captivating works in their first ever public show, entitled Sight and Sound.

Art in all mediums was represented in the displays, from patterned fabric prints to melodious music and black and white photo prints to colourful cartoons.

Luke Fox, who is studying photography and digital media, was among those exhibiting and said it had been exciting to hear people talking about his work.

'We had a private viewing on Tuesday, which went really well. We had a brilliant turn out and got some good feedback,'

Fellow student Antony Bagley, from Yarmouth, had enjoyed the exhibiting experience and hoped it may pave the way for future work.

The 25-year-old, who is studying commercial arts practice, said: 'I have had college exhibitions but this is the first public one. It's a very professional atmosphere and it's different to showing your work to someone in a class.

'It's definitely a great experience, the amount of people that turned up and showed an interest in art was enough for me.

'I'm enjoying the ride of it and learning things on the way, hopefully this will be the doorway to something bigger and better.'

The students are all completing their studies with UCS at Great Yarmouth College.

Sight and Sound opened on Wednesday and runs at the gallery until 1pm today (Friday).
