SOME of Southwater’s best art will be on sale this May as the village’s art club hosts its summer art exhibition weekend at the Lintot Square.

Held at Beeson House in Southwater, from Saturday May 19 to Sunday May 20, visitors will have the opportunity to purchase pictures, prints, cards, pottery and wood turned items produced by local artists.

Entry will be free to the event from 10am until 5pm where a tombola, refreshments and ample parking will be available.

The original artwork will come in a variety of mediums from acrylic, oil, pencil, ceramic relief, and pen and ink, with prices starting from £15.

Formed in May 2001, the club is one of the most active art clubs in the district, holding regular workshops, demonstrations and trips.

Members also take part in many other events organised in the Horsham area and several have participated in the Horsham open studio events as well as the exhibitions organised by the Association of Sussex Exhibition.
