Thirty-five people of all ages took part in a community art project to celebrate the boat race being held in Ely.
Ely-Hereward Rotary Club members say they have had an "excellent response", with a total of 67 contributions from 35 people, ranging in age from 13 to 74.
"There was a wide range of style and subject, celebrating Ely, its river and the joys of rowing," said club member Janet Porter, adding that "Ely has some very talented residents".
They are also currently on display in Hughes Electrical in Ely High Street and will form part of the summer open exhibition at the Babylon Gallery in August.
The club says "we welcome women and men of all ages and backgrounds who are interested in our activities.
