Unveiled painting showcases artistic talents
A painting which incorporates the talents of the artistic community from across West Norfolk has been unveiled to the public in King's Lynn.
Artists were invited to paint a section of an established piece of artwork, without having any idea of what they were working towards.
And this weekend, the 70 individual sections were placed together and the identity of the mystery painting was revealed at the King's Lynn Arts Centre.
Liz Falconbridge, the centre's director, said: 'The painting selected for this year's project has been loaned to us by a private collector.
'It is of The Lynn Ferry, circa 1892, and was completed by an unknown artist.
'The painting is the artist's interpretation of quayside area in 1800; we understand the artist wasn't from the town, but liked it enough to come back here.'
She added: 'It's such a lovely project for the artists. Some may have a piece of sky to copy; others may have something a bit more intricate and detailed, such as a face.

'But when the sections are placed together, you can always see the overall picture. We haven't had a year yet where the project hasn't worked.'
The project – called 'The Bigger Picture' – is now in its third year and will remain on display in the Fermoy Gallery until the end of next month.
It will be placed alongside works from previous years, as well as paintings completed by school children using the same technique in a spin-off project 'The Little Bigger Picture'.
The exhibition will run at the King's Lynn Arts Centre until October 29.
