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.

Paintings of North Somerset's beautiful coastline were displayed, as well as stills of fruit and mountain ranges.

Event organiser and artist, Dave Tabrett, felt it was a success.

He said: "The event went well, and around 150 people visited the exhibition at the weekend.

"As far as I know, all the exhibitors sold pieces of art, and the arts fair is all about getting your name out there as a professional."

Dave and fellow artist Nick Pound, who specialises in landscape photography, started the exhibition in 2017.

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