Portishead Around The Houses Art Trail returned for its second instalment on Saturday and Sunday, as creators opened their homes to show off their work.

Art enthusiasts enjoyed a choice of 27 exhibits to browse around the town, many of which were in walking distance.

Watercolour, oil and pastel paintings, plus textiles, ceramics, photography and furniture were among the pieces showcased.

Trish Williams, one of the exhibitors, said: "As a first-time participant of the trail, it was a very successful and well-attended event.

"I think most visitors were impressed with the range of art and crafts on offer.

"There was something for everybody.

"I'm sure the trail will go from strength to strength and have even more participating artists next year."
