A TWO-week-long Topsham art group exhibition draws to a close next weekend.

People fond of paintings who would like to attend, have until this Sunday, August 16, to view the work on display at Topsham School.

Jenny Chandler, a committee member at the group, said the exhibition, which started on Saturday, August 1, had so far been a great success.

"We have done extremely well in the first few days of the exhibition. Over the first weekend we sold approximately 25 pictures," she explained.
