Paintings by members of the East Anglian Group of Marine Artists and photographs from worldwide submissions to the Global Shorelines Project fill the walls of the 17th century Great Yarmouth merchants house.

The Yare Gallery's current show COAST, explores a major source of inspiration for many artists, with the gallery's curator Sarah Young saying how "the light at the coast is very different to inland".
