Forty artists will be exhibiting, and several new exhibitors are joining established local artists in putting their artwork on show.

The artwork will be in a wide range of styles and media including landscapes in oil, abstracts in acrylic, and flowers in watercolour.

Most of the work on show will be for sale, as will original cards.
