Artist Jane Hall who finds endless inspiration in the sugary thrills of the seaside as well as the glories of the quay and the less-lovely areas has submitted a trio of her latest works.

The exhibition opens in Great Yarmouth library galleries on Monday building to Norfolk Day on Friday July 27.

And in tribute to the venue which plays a key role in the artistic life of the town, she has painted the building itself.

Inspired by the pillars and signage she said it seemed like a natural choice given the subject and the occasion.

Among others also showing their works are Daniel McGrath, Alison Chapman, Lorraine Auton, Colin Michael Harvey and Jasmine Jenkins.

Some of the works will be for sale, with 10pc of the proceeds going to the library’s friends group.

People can submit their memories for a memory board and display of photographs.
