Among the works on show at the Red Dot Gallery in Fish Hill are Lizzie Riches' Lady Frances and The Florist's Feast and Barrie Morris' Blickling Revisited.

The gallery's Colin Rawlings said: "In 2018 the gallery invited 18 artists and makers to create work for the exhibition 'Spirit of Place'.

The exhibition is on from July 15 to 28 and is being run in connection with the Holt Festival, which runs from July 21 to 27.
