Members of Filey Art Society have been getting out their paints, pastels, easels and ideas in preparation for their summer exhibition.

The society has 100 members and while all will not be exhibiting, there will be a wide variety of styles and techniques on show at the Evron Centre, John Street, Filey.

These include Pebbles by Christine Hammond, Wobbly Filey Seafront by Ann Bristow, Reflections by Chris Taylor and Ravenscar by Don Driscoll.

“All works are originals by local artists. Most works are for sale and can be taken on the day,” said society secretary and artist Ann Bristow.

“There will also be delicious teas and cakes for sale so why not come and enjoy a chat with the friendly stewards,” she said.

“You may even get chance to talk to the artist when you buy your painting.”

Hunmanby-based Ann’s trademark is the wobbly paintings of coastal and rural scenes.

A, former teacher Ann has also exhibited in Scarborough and Bridlington, where she helps run a gallery managed by a co-operative of artists..

The exhibition opens on Friday August 23 at 10am and closes on Monday August 26 at 4pm. Entry is free.

Filey Arts Society meets at the community centre in St John Street each Thursday from 9am to noon. Visitors welcome.
