WHEN it comes to changes, Exmouth Art Group has seen plenty because it has been hosting exhibitions for nearly 70 years.
The latest is having to find a different venue to hold its summer exhibition due to the imminent demolition of The Elizabeth Hall.
For its 67th show, it will be relocating to Ocean Blue Bowl on the Esplanade where its members work will be on display from Thursday, September 5, to Sunday, September 22, from 10am to 6pm.
BBC Spotlights home affairs correspondent Simon Hall will open and award the Norah Pearce Prizes and 12 commendations at a private preview evening on Wednesday, September 4.
When it opens to the public, visitors will be able to enjoy a wealth of local talent and have the chance to purchase original pieces of artwork.
There will be a diverse range of 2D and 3D work encompassing all media types and styles from the very contemporary to more traditional representational pieces.
Among those exhibiting is Gill Fitzpatrick who has been painting for eight years, and during that time has completed an open college of art painting course.
She said: "I have experimented in printmaking and enjoy working with collage, but my first love is painting.
"I was delighted to have one of my paintings chosen for the South West Academy of Fine Arts Open Exhibitions. I find inspiration in the West of England coastal landscape, and in particular the Exe Estuary."
Coming from a dress design background is Beryl Leader. The former underwear designer is now retired and enjoys a love of both art and crafts.
"I always have a need to try something new," admitted Beryl. "I walk a lot in the local area, always ready with my camera to find inspiration for my artwork."
Sticking almost exclusively to pastels is Michael Norman, a member of the Pastel Society UK.
His work has been exhibited in the South West Academy of Arts Exhibition and he has held many solo exhibitions, and had his work featured in art magazines.
Visitors to the Exmouth Art Show will have their chance to vote for their favourite exhibit. The artist who receives the most votes will be awarded the Channel View Cup, which was donated by Exmouth Rotarian Clifford Lenn.
The group has many members with art prizes to their credit, including Jan Nettelton who was the recipient of the Exmouth Mayor's Best in Show trophy in 2011.
Jan, also a member of Topsham Art Group, said: "The inspiration for my paintings comes from nature itself, and my subjects include local woodland and river scenes. I frequently paint in acrylics, but also enjoy using watercolours."
The art group will also be holding a raffle to win a painting, with a donation from the profits going to a local charity.
Entry into the exhibition is £1. The venue is suitable for wheelchairs.
