Felixstowe: Praise for artists’ work at annual resort show

MORE than 60 artists are showing off their work at one of Felixstowe’s most popular annual events.

Pictures were already being snapped up by eager buyers almost as soon as the doors opened at the Felixstowe Art Group’s 61st annual exhibition.

The event – which runs from 10am to 6pm today, tomorrow and Saturday at the Trinity Methodist Church hall in Orwell Road – has 224 works on show in oils, watercolours, pencil drawings, acrylics, wax, origami and charcoal.

There are also unframed works to view and buy.

Vice chairman Jim Lait said: “There is a huge range of work on different topics and in different styles and techniques.

“There has been a steady flow of people coming to see the work and people have said they think the exhibition has improved on last year.

“As vice chairman, I think the standard of work has definitely gone up which is good for the club and the prestige of the club and shows we are stepping forward in the right direction.”
