GREAT Yarmouth and District Society of Artists has created a website to highlight the work of members.

The independent society, with over 80 years of history in the town, is hoping to gain a new audience for its artworks.

Launched by Radio Norfolk personality, columnist and society patron Mike Hicks, the website showcases 186 paintings, artist's biographies, information pages and the historic permanent collection.

Society chairman Margaret Carver said: “To figure in today's art landscape we have to follow new ways."

The website will be regularly updated with new works, some of which will be for sale and can be found at www.greatyarmouthartists.co.uk.
