The Otter Vale Art Society’s annual exhibition – a showcase of its members’ best work of the year – runs from Friday, August 9 until Saturday 17.

A large selection of work will be on display, and this year some of the artists will also be selling cards of their paintings.

The works will be judged by a visiting artist and prizes will be awarded in several categories.

The exhibition is at The Institute, Yonder Steet, Ottery St Mary, open from 10am until 5pm daily. Admission is just £1.

The society hosts regular demonstations by visiting artists. On Friday, July 5, Trevor Waugh created a watercolour of roses in sunlight. Trevor's work has impressed the horticultural experts at Kew Royal Botanical Gardens so much, they have commissioned a book of his rose paintings, due out next year. They said "We have plenty of botanically accurate painters, but you paint the heart of the rose."
