ARTWORK from more than 50 Thornbury artists will go on display at the end of the month for a week-long showcase.

The annual summer exhibition from Thornbury Art Club will see around 200 pieces, both framed and unframed, on display at Thornbury Methodist Church Hall between Saturday, July 29 and Sunday, August 6.

Items in the show range from watercolours and oil paintings, to mosaics and silk painting, with visitors asked to vote for their favourite.

“We are very proud of what we will have on show this year and are excited to show people what we have been doing,” said club chairman Tricia Latham.

“It is a culmination of a year’s work, and there is a lot of variety, ranging from small intimate pieces, to some large and brash work.

“It is always a bit of a jigsaw to get all the items in and find the right place for them but we just about manage.”

“Everyone has a different approach to art and that is what brings such diversity to an exhibition like this.

“For those that enjoy art, you can always get inspiration from seeing someone else’s work. “You think – oh that’s rather nice – or I could try that myself.”

As well as artwork from club members, many of which are available for purchase, there will be work from members of the Thornbury Stroke Support Group on show in an adjacent room.

Tricia said: “We are really looking forward to having the Stroke Support Group show with us again this year, their work is quite fantastic.”

Entry is free to the exhibition, which will be open from 10am to 6pm daily, and 2pm to 4pm on Sundays.
