A new seasonal exhibition showcasing the talents of more than 50 top artists from Sudbury and the surrounding area is due to be staged in the town this month.

The Sudbury Society’s ‘Summer Art Show’ at St Peters Church from July 17 to 21, will feature some of the finest art and crafts being produced by renowned professional artists.

Many of the creative people behind the exhibits will be manning the show and chatting to the public about their work.

The show is biennial and is the sister exhibition to ‘Visions of Sudbury’, both of which are run under the umbrella of The Sudbury Society.

Exhibition organiser Robin Drury said: “This year, the organising committee decided to ‘raise the bar’ and encourage a more professional presentation, and to make this exhibition stand out from the many art shows that happen at this time of year.

“As a result we have been really pleased at the response from the top artists around who are keen to be part of this event.”

Among those taking part are landscape artist Peter Troy, who has a fascination for the ‘large skies’ of Suffolk and Essex.

Also exhibiting is Belinda King, an original member and former chairwoman of Gainsborough’s House Print Workshop, and Michelle Webber, the professional Sudbury artist who counts print-making, mosaics, painting and drawing among her many skills.

One of the highlights of the show will be a painting by world renowned artist, David Porteous-Butler, who painted a scene of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee flotilla as it made its way down the Thames.

He has donated a work to be sold by Dutch auction during the show to help raise money for the Save the Children charity.

Apart from originals, there will be a shop selling unframed work, prints and greetings cards – all produced by the artists themselves.

The show will be open from 10am to 8pm, Thursday to Saturday and until 4pm on the Sunday with a preview evening on Wednesday from 7pm to 9pm. Entertainment will be provided by Hintlesham pianist, Peter Durrant.
