SCARBOROUGH Art Society is delighting visitors with its lively open-air exhibition in the sunken gardens between the Royal and Grand hotels.

All the artists featured live in the town and have drawn inspiration from the bustling harbour, beautiful countryside and rugged splendour of the Jurassic coast.

The work includes stunning and intriguing studies of the castle, lighthouse, boats in the harbour, the coastline, the dramatic cliffs and caves of Bempton and Flamborough.

They are portrayed in oils, watercolours, acrylics and other media in a range of styles.

The exhibition can be seen daily until 5 June, from 11am to 5pm.

“It is well worth a second visit as the artists replace their pictures as they are sold,” says secretary Shirley Warrington. Treasurer Roy Buckley adds: “It’s been going well so far and we’ve sold quite a few paintings already.

“We’ve had lots of people coming down and showing an interest - we get familiar faces coming back year after year.”

The twice-yearly exhibition and sale dates back to the 1950s and has always been held in the same location.

The next one will take place during the weeks either side of the August bank holiday.

New members are always welcome to join the group. Application forms are available at the event.
