“It’s looking very calm and peaceful,” said Louise Sant, one of the organisers, “It’s very exciting.”

She said it was on the first time that the gallery had held an exhibition where all those involved had showcased work on a particular theme.

As well as having a watery theme to the pieces themselves, coral and shells have been used to help present some of the pieces. Shuck Inshore will continue until September 26 at Artspace Woodbridge on the Thoroughfare.
