Budding artists will showcase their work then an art club’s week-long summer exhibition opens next Saturday.

Wisbech Art Club’s exhibition, at the Pump Room, The Crescent, Wisbech, runs from June 28 until July 5.

There will be more than 80 paintings on display, with many of them for sale.

The paintings embrace all forms of media, including watercolour, acrylic and pastel.

At the exhibition, two trophies will be up for grabs - the Graham Gardiner/Hunter Bow trophy for the best painting and a rose bowl for the best flower painting.

There will also be the chance for visitors to select their favourite paintings.

The club, which was formed in 1933 and has about 50 members, meets on Friday evenings at Elm Centre to paint and have demonstrations by professional artists.

They hold two exhibitions each year - one in the summer and a winter showcase at St Peter’s Church.
