King's Lynn Arts Centre

The cream of artistic output in Eastern England provides an exhibition packed with innovation and interest, with 180 works selected from 700 pieces submitted by more than 300 artists.

There are sights to delight, amuse, shock, dislike and amaze. But one thing is certain - everyone will find something to please.

The three gallery spaces at the arts centre provide an airy setting in which to stand back and admire (or not!) the huge variety of subjects captured in a great range of media.

The award-winning pictures reflect that diversity with Gary Lawrence's representation of Delphi in ballpoint pen on paper and Frances Kearney's Digital C type untitled print sharing the best in show award. Catherine Richardson's acrylic on board, Still Water, and Chris Loukes' still from film, Landscape Construct Deconstruct, further illustrate the point.

The exhibition has its fair share of the wacky and experimental but there is also a wealth of pictures demonstrating impressive drawing skills ranging from Susan Taylor's Plane Tree to Jan Dedman's portrait, Chris.
