The celebrated East Anglian artist Maggi Hambling is the subject of an exhibition at The Old Rectory, Brockdish, from October 11-19.
The artist is equally at home painting George Melly for the National Portrait Gallery or making sculptures using cans of Special Brew.
In recent years her attention has turned to the coast near her house in Suffolk and her most famous and contentious work is the striking and monumental sculpture Scallop on Aldeburgh beach.
The exhibition will comprise new oil paintings and her first small, acrylics on paper.
Most works will be for sale with prices starting at £1000.
