Internationally-renowned artists Alasdair Urquhart will be the judge for Exmouth Art Groups annual exhibition.

The group will again be displaying original paintings, 3D pieces, mosaics, digital art, unframed work and greetings cards at Ocean from tomorrow (Thursday, October 4) until Sunday, October 14.

This year Alasdair Urquhart has agreed to be the judge and will have a special showing of some of his work.

Group member Wyn Appleford has donated a painting – ‘Sunset over the River Exe’ – for the first prize in the charity raffle which this year supports Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund.

There will also be a range of runner-up prizes given by regional sponsors.

Visitors can view the exhibits from 10am to 6pm with a nominal charge of £1 to enter.

Light refreshments will be available, and this year LED, which runs Ocean, is making a special discounted offer on a cup of coffee for those admitted to the event.
