Hundreds of people have visited an art gallery since it relocated to a prominent location on the north coast.

Cromer Artspace opened in the Art Deco building on the town's western esplanade on April 30.

The redeveloped venue, which is being leased from North Norfolk District Council (NNDC), is filled with work donated by local artists.

The pieces are being auctioned to raise funds for additional projects to promote public art in the town.

The exhibition will be open daily until May 18, 11am to 4pm, and bids can also be placed online at cromer-artspace.uk.
