Some of Ernie Child's biggest, boldest and brightest canvases will add atmosphere to a nostalgia talk taking place in Yarmouth Minster.
The potter and painter is well-known for his vibrant paintings, harking back to his maritime childhood and seafaring tales that infused the family.
The historic Rows and bustling quayside of yesteryear continue to be his inspiration and the starting point for his talk.
The talk on Friday October 6 called Fishing, The Rows, and More starts at 7pm with a preview at 6pm.
The paintings will be on show until October 15, for the Blessing of the Nets Service and herring supper, a ceremony that has been revived in recent years by Mr Childs who is deeply connected with the sea.
