Budleigh artists are preparing to show off their work at their annual exhibition.
The 36th Budleigh Salterton Art Club Annual Exhibition will be at the Public Hall between August 16 and August 25.
More than 100 artists are set to take part, displaying around 240 framed and 150 unframed exhibits.
As well as enjoying the artwork, visitors will also be able to take part in a raffle to win a specially commissioned watercolour of Otter Head by group member Bob Seabright, with proceeds going to Budleigh Salterton Hospital at the artist’s request.
Club chairman Michelle Sykes said: “The exhibition will be mainly paintings, but with some sculptures and ceramics, so it will be a mixed exhibition.
“We always have a very high standard of artwork at the exhibition, and it attracts big visitor numbers, because people know there are good things to be bought at a not unreasonable price.
“We pride ourselves on our high quality, affordable art.”
