The display is made up of work from a group of five East Anglian landscape artists collectively known as Artscape.

“The paintings on display are inspired by East Anglia from the dunes on the Norfolk coast, to the never ending skyline of Fenland,” says Artscape member Liz Gardner.

“The exhibition will showcase a variety of artistic techniques used to depict the local landscape, from simple pencil lines through to the complex layering of paint.

“Visitors to Babylon Arts can meet the artists at weekends to hear about the methods they have used and the stories behind their work. “The show promises to be interesting and informative as well as a celebration of the landscapes of our region.”

Among the artists presenting are Julie Baker, Katrina Wilkie, Natasha Day, Karen Macwhinnie and Lyz Gardner.

The exhibition runs from Tuesday (13) to October 2 at Babylon Arts, Waterside, Ely CB7 4AU; gallery opening times are Tues to Fri 12-4pm, Saturday and Sunday 10am-4pm, closed Monday.
