A range of paintings include landscapes and abstracts will feature at the St Albans Art Society annual summer exhibition.
Between 700 and 800 people came to last year’s show and a similar number is expected this year, bidding on art ranging from £50 to £700.
The society’s chairman, Edward Bevin, said: “The whole spectrum of art is covered. People come from across the district and outside it.”
The exhibition allows visitors to vote on their favourite, with the winner being awarded a cup.
For a society celebrating its 120th birthday this year, it is showing no signs of being caught behind the times.

“The society is very much on the up, we like to think.”
