Visions of fauna and flora fill the 17th Century merchants house in the latest theme at The Yare Gallery for their summer show. 

Located on South Quay in Great Yarmouth, The Yare Gallery, headed up by art curator Sarah Young, has brought us many mixed group exhibitions since it opened in May last year.

100 new and established East Anglian artists fill the historic walls in the Fauna and Flora show. The show compiles large scale floral paintings and pastoral views alongside statues of native birds and quirky chickens, marine life and photographs of trees.

There are over 200 artworks to see and purchase in the show, as well as original artworks, ceramics and prints in the gallery shop.

A recent addition to the gallery is the courtyard garden and refreshment stand - a nature-friendly space in which to enjoy a little bit more artwork.
