Sidmouth Society of Artists is exhibiting their work until July 18 at Kennaway House.

Exmouth Town Crier, Roger Bourgein attended the opening today (July 5) to announce the event was open.

The group has chosen the Admiral Nurse Campaign as its cause of the year and will be raising money through raffles and other activities.

Ahead of the opening day, Duncan Watt, chairman of the board of trustees at Sid Valley Memory Café, chose his ‘best in show and runner ups for the Marion Ovens Award.

“Members hang the pictures in the best possible way to display them to best advantage.”

Members of the public are encouraged to come along and vote for their favourite painting in the exhibit.

A prize will then be presented to the winning artist.
