A small art gallery in Kent's latest show features works by some of the biggest names in contemporary art, as well as Hot Fuzz actor Nick Frost.
The Linden Hall Studio in Deal was inundated with hundreds of submissions from artists of all abilities from all over the world for its Winter Group Show.
The self-funded family business in St George's Road, Deal's show, which runs until Saturday, January 29, 2022,
features 300 works by 200 artists.
They include a piece by famous British abstract artist Sir Terry Frost, who died in 2003, and actor Nick Frost's first ever artwork to be publicly exhibited.
Work is also on show by Mali Morris, contemporary artist who co-ordinated the summer show at the Royal Academy of Art earlier this year.
Gallery director Myles Corley said: "We are extremely proud to have been able to pull together the largest independent group show in a private gallery.
"This exhibition features some of the biggest names in contemporary art... as well as celebrities such as Nick Frost.
"Alongside this we are showing emerging talent from our Open Submission competition. Hundreds and Hundreds of works from all over the world were submitted to us, and we selected as many as we can to hang in this really special show, giving artists of all ages and styles, the opportunity to show next to the most famous painters and sculptors in Britain."
Sir Terry's art on show is Carlyon Sunshine, which was painted in the last year of his life, while Nick Frost's is an acrylic on canvas.
Myles said of Nick Frost, who lives in London: "He is a great champion for the arts and wanted an opportunity show work within his first ever exhibition."
Despite being a small gallery on the Kent coast, the studio is widely regarded in art circles.
He added: "Over the years our reputation has grown as a centre for excellence in visual art on the Kent coast. We work with the estate of Sir Terry Frost and others throughout the year."
