Abstract art to wildlife landscapes featured at Wrington arts fair, which took place at the village hall, in Silver Street, over the two-day event on November 23-24.

Paintings of North Somerset's beautiful coastline, as well as stills of fruit and mountain ranges featured at the gallery.

Event organiser and artist, Dave Tabrett, said: "The arts fair went well, and around 150 people visited the exhibition.

"As far as I know, all exhibitors sold art work, and the event is all about getting your name out there as a professional."

Dave and fellow artist Nick Pound, who specialises in landscape photography, began running the fair in 2017.

Dave continued: "If the date is available for the hall and I'm around to host it, we will hold the fair again next year."
