Edward and Phyllis Bigny, of Foxburrow Road, Warren Heath, are the co-organisers.
Mr Bigny said: "We are both keen artists and so when the hospice approached us to run the exhibition we were delighted to help. It is a very good cause - you only have to mention the name of the hospice and people are only to pleased to help."
Pictures are priced at around £20 and upwards.
"We have asked the artists to price their work reasonably so they are affordable. A quarter of the sale price of pictures will go straight to the hospice."
