A PROJECT has been launched to brighten up Exmouth's empty shop windows with artwork.
A number of photographs have appeared in a vacant shop window on Church Street to fill what Exmouth Town Management Partnership considered unattractive empty space.
The initiative is the idea of the town's photo group.
David McHutchison, a member of the group, said: "We hope people will appreciate the pictures and that we may be able to extend the idea across more of the empty shops."

John Fowler, of property developers Eagle Investments, supported the launch of the project.
The town management partnership said the idea was a cost effective way of adding interest to an otherwise lifeless space whilst providing a local group an opportunity to display work to a wider audience.

Tony Collins, town manager, added: "This idea was really simple to work through, but only with the help of John and the enthusiasm of David and the photo group.
"I hope we can work with other art clubs and landlords to see more of our empty units used in this way."
