More than 70 members of Felixstowe Art Group are taking part in the show - with around 200 paintings on view, and many more unframed works for sale.

Landscapes, still life, abstracts and portraits are among the works with artists working in oils, watercolours, charcoal and mixed media.

Mayor Joan Sennington officially opened the five-day display at the Trinity Methodist Church Hall in Orwell Road.

As usual there are many Suffolk scenes among the pictures and one of the most unusual is Michele Parsons' 50 Suffolk Landscapes, and there are some stunning bird studies by Peter Beeson.

There is also a tribute to club member Edna Case, who died in June aged 85, with four of her delicate and sensitive watercolours, including a still life and landscapes of Felixstowe Ferry, on show, loaned by her friend Frank Champkin.
