The Otter Vale Art Society holds its annual exhibition from Friday, August 3 until Saturday, August 11.

It is a chance for the artists to display their best work and sell it if they wish, subject to a commission to help pay the society’s costs.

It is also a good opportunity for the local public to see the artistic talent within the local community.

Every year a visiting artist comes to judge the work, and awards prizes in several categories. There is also a ‘visitors choice’ category, allowing the public to vote on the painting they think deserves an award. Last year this was won by the club’s membership secretary, Terry Davies, for his painting Woodbridge Tide Mill.

This year there is also a raffle in aid of the Ottery Help Scheme charity.

The exhibition takes place at the Ottery Institute in Yonder Street, Ottery St Mary and is open from 10am until 5pm daily, including Sunday. Admission is £1, and free of charge for children and students.
