AN ART exhibition is taking place this weekend showcasing dozens of pieces of work.

The annual Adur Art Club exhibition is returning this week at Shoreham Community Centre to give its artists a chance to show their work.

Dozens of paintings will be displayed across Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 June from 10am to 4pm.

Several of the paintings are available for sale including a variety of pieces depicting Sussex locations such as the Amex Stadium by Jim Shrimpton and country pub by Lesley Tomlinson.

Others are painted from photographs of people and animals, such as of Bob Marley by Carole Webb and galloping horses by Paula Hickling.

Club members Elaine Spurdle and Angela Trittons have submitted a striking portait and a seascape - both are also up for sale.

The club was formed 50 years ago by artists Mollie Harvey, John Lingham, Ricky Hales and Ron Lines, who rented a small room in the Old School in Ham Road, Shoreham.

The Argus:

Gradually people began to take interest in the group and joined them, it found a new home at the new Shoreham Community Centre in Pond Road and the four named the group the Adur Art Club.

The club meets every Thursday throughout the year, holds art demonstrations, and also makes outings to venues of artistic interest.

The Argus:

The group is run by an active committee headed by the president Sally Cooper, an artist and member for over 40 years and the chairman, Wally James an artist who has been painting for more than 35 years.

Artists wishing to join Adur Art Club are welcome to come along and talk to the team this weekend.
