ART lovers are invited to attend an exhibition at A la Ronde which will feature the work of an Exmouth artist.

A display of work from Yvonne Taylor will be shown from Saturday until Wednesday, August 12.

Yvonne said: "My work is vibrant, reflecting the rich colours from both the Italian and East Devon countryside."

Salli Carr-Griffin, assistant property manager at A la Ronde, said she was very excited to welcome Yvonne for the exhibition.

She added: "Her work reflects the liveliness of many of the decorative items in the house and her obvious love of the countryside."

Admission to the exhibition in the tea-room is free during normal opening times.

Meanwhile, small scissors have been chosen by volunteer Wendy Cornes as A la Ronde's object of the month.

Each month staff and volunteers from the 16-sided National Trust property choose an item from the collection to be specifically featured.

A spokesperson for A la Ronde said: "The scissors sit beneath the glass dome in the drawing room and appear to be ridiculously small to modern eyes.

"They would, however, have been a highly treasured item. With mass production still to come, they would have been individually handmade with great effort by a craftsman.

"Objects like this were made to last a lifetime so were often created using elaborate or whimsical designs, reflecting art as well as utility.
