From brilliant blooms to coastal scenes and abstracts - Great Yarmouth library galleries will be alive with talent and colour this week.
Some ten artists - many of them well-known professionals - will display their work in the town from today, Tuesday, to 2pm on Saturday.
They are exhibiting for the first time as part of a newly-formed group Eastern Contemporary Artists.
Among those showing their work are Geoffrey Chatten, Rachel Thomas, Lesley Storey, Edward Bush and Ginette Amis.
Mrs Thomas, who is known for her bold use of colour, said the group was keen to attract new members whether seasoned professionals or super-talented novices.
