Norfolk artist Geoffrey Lefever's new show is called Ash on an Old Man's Sleeve - a phrase from T.S. Eliot's poem Little Gidding - and it runs until August 28.

Mr Lefever said: 'My work falls within a strand of contemporary abstract art, to a certain degree minimalist, but with surface textures from materials such as wood ash, burnt hessian, fine open weave Indian paper and acrylic. The geometry within the works, together with the muted colour range will, I hope, resonate with the structure, fabric and surfaces of stone and timber in Norwich Cathedral.'

Mr Lefever has been a member of Norwich 20 Group since 1965 and has previously exhibited with the group in Norwich's twin cities, Koblenz, Novi Sad and Rouen.

The free exhibition at Norwich Cathedral's Hostry is open Mondays to Saturdays 9.30am to 4.30pm, and Sundays 10am to 3pm. Visit www.cathedral.org.uk
