St Nicholas' Chapel and Doric Art Gallery, King's Lynn (King's Lynn Festival)
Dozens of artists have contributed an exciting variety of work to the WNAA summer exhibition which utilises the vast expanse of the Chapel and the more traditional space at the King Street gallery.
Visitors, who are greeted by Tom Sharp's arresting scarlet Appli Ant sculpture created out of household and garden equipment, should not be deterred from venturing further.
For an exploration reveals a delightful array of pictures encompassing many styles and media - but all of them of high quality. From Mick Grady's pastel portrait of the late Jim Sharpe of Denver and landscapes by Gerald Marsland and Mike Smith to Joy Layton's acrylic Sea of Blue there was a wealth of interest to enjoy.
John Hughes watercolour Sea Defences, Storm in oils by Brigitte Box, Sarah Bowett's acrylic of Ringstead and Sally Hale's Inventive Wave in mixed media, added to the range.

Looking somewhat incongruous in its historic setting was Mary Crofts' installation entitled Waterfall - a collection of suspended, upturned water bottles.
This fifth exhibition has built on the quality of its forerunners, providing a showcase for contemporary Norfolk artists producing very appealing work.
