Two artists are joining forces for a colourful and imaginative exhibition in Great Yarmouth.

Mark Burrell and Dave Gooch will be showing off their creations at Skippings Gallery in King Street.

The exhibition runs from Monday September 17 for two weeks until Sunday September 30, 10-4pm most days.

Mr Gooch’s most recent paintings are portraits.

They are described as much more than factual accounts of the face, showing something of the inner workings of the individual. Along with these there are a number of landscapes, a merging of real and imagined places.

He was a finalist in Not the Turner Prize run by a national newspaper and an occasional writer for an art magazine.

Mark Burrell is an award-winning artist, and his work has appeared on television six times.

In London, he won the Lucy Morrison Memorial Prize and has exhibited at the Royal Academy.

One of his favourite themes is circus.
