Some of the finest artwork in South Lincolnshire went on display inside St Matthew’s Church, Sutton Bridge, over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

The church was taken over by members of Sutton Bridge Art Group for the annual St Matthew’s Art Exhibition which opened on Friday and runs throughout this week.

Around 300 paintings and other works of art are on display, including oils, pastels, watercolours and ink, representing the artistic efforts of about 100 artists.

Organiser Geoff De Roux said: “There are so many people who want to paint, both professional artists and enthusiastic amateurs, so it’s wonderful to be chairman of a club that has so much talent and people who are eager to learn at our classes.” Pictured above, artists and organisers pictured after opening, of the exhibition at St Matthew’s, from left Addy Garwell, Geof De Roux, Lesley Robinson, Andrea Taylor, Sandra Carpenter, Mark Vickers, Margaret Pratt, Maureen Hunt, Bernard Pratt SG260816-100TW.
