Gallery artists were asked to produce works inspired by their response to Blickling Hall, and the results comprise a new exhibition in Holt.
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 collection includes an Anne Boleyn puppet lady, a Park White Bull with golden horns in ceramic, along with paintings ranging from White Mice nibbling the almost priceless book collection, carnival animals with the hall as its backdrop to a certain Lady Frances in an astonishing tulip dress."
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.
