I spent an enjoyable afternoon in Sidmouth last Saturday admiring work by the newly formed Venture Artists from Budleigh Salterton.
The group are holding their first summer exhibition at the East Devon Art Academy in Old Fore Street, Sidmouth from 2-8 July.
Exhibition organiser Teresa Creton explained that they were mostly members of Budleigh Salterton Art Club who had come together with the aim of developing their technique through painting sessions.
There are works in oils, acrylics, pastels and watercolour, all for sale at affordable prices.
Artists exhibiting include Iris Ansell, Julie Bingham, Sue Chapman, Steve Hagger, Pam Harber, Wendy Markham, Nick Speare, Chris Stacey, Sheila Stacey and Jenny Young.
