An art exhibition showcases the work of over 60 of the area’s leading artists and crafts people - most of them well known professionals - began in Sudbury this week.

The event is being held in St Peter’s on the Market Hill.

The Sudbury Summer Art Fair ends on Sunday, and is open from 10am until 8pm from Thursday to Saturday and 5pm on Sunday.

There will be the opportunity to buy original works of art and craft and a shop where you can buy unframed work, prints and greetings cards - all produced by the artists themselves.

Many of the artists will be on hand manning the show. Admission is free. Viewers are invited to come enjoy coffee and cake at the café.

“Our continued efforts to encourage a more professional presentation, and to make this exhibition stand out from the many art shows that happen at this time of year are definitely paying off,” said Robin Drury, the exhibition organiser.

“As a result we have been really pleased at the response from the top artists around who are keen to be part of this event.

“This show is biennial and the sister exhibition to The Sudbury Society’s ‘Visions of Sudbury’. Over the years both have proved very popular with both exhibitors and the public.”

Proceeds from the event will go towards the St Peter’s refurbishment project.
