VISITORS to the Visions of Sudbury exhibition will come face-to-face with the familiar, and not so familiar, as the exhibiting artists offer an incredibly wide range of subjects.

Those yearning for yesteryear are treated to nostalgic views of the town, including a glimpse of the fun to be had at the town’s late, lamented open air swimming pool.

The venue for the exhibition, St Peter’s, is a popular subject and is interpreted in a variety of ways – a bustling market day and a snow scape to name two.

The town’s famous water meadows are well represented, complete with swans, Highland cattle and rowers, as is the statue of Sudbury’s most famous son, Thomas Gainsborough, and the Valley Walk in all seasons.

There are close up studies of church windows and cottage doors, street scenes and the River Stour.

This is the fourth annual Visions of Sudbury exhibition organised by the Sudbury Society and runs until Monday.
