The eighth annual exhibition, Artbeat 2020, promises to be exciting and varied, and will give visitors a chance to buy directly from the artists.

Among those displaying their work is oil painter, June Murrell. June paints en plein air and one of her recent lockdown works is an atmospheric painting from a wild flower meadow overlooking Sidmouth.

New to Artbeat is Colaton Raleigh artist, Laura Boyd, whose work has appeared in numerous galleries and on one occasion at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. Her recent work is in acrylic and collage and is inspired by local places.

Social distancing applies and a facemask is required. Artbeat 2020 is open daily from 10am until 5pm and admission is free.
