Ely artist Ted Coney will be reopening his pop-up gallery for its 11th season at the end of this month.
Ted has been making paintings about family life for the past 50 years.
Although called ‘portraits’ they are not pictures of people in the conventional sense.
His latest finished oil painting, entitled ‘Hinaki’ is about the links between Ely and New Zealand through eel fishing.
‘Hinaki’ means eel trap in Maori.
