The Old Fire Station in Carlisle has opened a new art exhibition featuring the work of a joiner from Carlisle who became an abstract painter.
It's all part of plans to make the new arts hub a success, after the building was saved from closure.
Colin Beck paints naked figures in an abstract style on anything lying around, which for him is often wood.
As a child he wanted to be an artist, but his father suggested he learn a trade. After 40 years as a joiner, he's finally come back to his passion.
This is the 6th exhibition at the Old Fire Station in Carlisle since it opened and staff hope it'll bring more people to the centre, cementing its success as an arts venue.
You can view the exhibition for free all throughout October.
