Lynn from all Angles, this year’s King’s Lynn Festival exhibition, features the work of two artists who have shared a fascination for Lynn, its architecture, river and big skies.

The exhibition, on show in the Fermoy Gallery in the Guildhall complex at King Street until August 4, marks the 60th anniversary of the death of acclaimed Lynn artist Walter Dexter for whom the town became his overwhelming subject. Cambridge-based artist, illustrator and calligrapher Jon Harris knows Lynn well and has produced 26 paintings and pen and ink drawings especially for the exhibition and which are for sale. He described them as “homage to Dexter”.

A second exhibition in the nearby Red Barn is retrospective of the work of Lynn photographer Jim Tuck who died last year. Mr Tuck was for many years official festival photographer and a selection of his work included photographs, transparencies and digital images.
