THE SUMMER exhibition of the Scarborough Art Society is underway as organisers extend the event by a further week.
For the first time the exhibition, held in the Sunken Gardens behind the South Bay Cliff lift, will run for three weeks until September 4.
So far the 2011 event has proved popular, with a steady flow of visitors browsing local artist’s work.
Art society president Bill Blake said: “The exhibition is going very well so far.
“It certainly seems to have picked up from last year, and has definitely picked up from our exhibition in May when the weather was quite daunting.
“We are getting a lot of interest and a lot of people coming through. Sales are also doing well.
“We just need some nice weather now to see us through to the end of the exhibition.”
