Alice Wilmott organised the cosmos-themed display at Number 65 High Street and the exhibition features work from students around North Somerset as well as artists from London and Bristol.

The exhibition is running until Friday from 9am-1pm.

Alice, who is studying fine art at Nailsea School sixth form, said: “I’ve been making art since I can remember and have always been creative.

“I’m organising the exhibition to show the community the talent this town has, while adding some creativity to Nailsea and showing young creatives you can be an artist for a living.”
