LOVERS of art flocked to a popular annual exhibition displaying the talents of members of Hanham Art Club.

The event ran from June 4-9 and kicked off with a special launch party where guest of honour was Bristol watercolour artist Tim Wilmot.

Tim, a member of the Bristol Savages, an historic society concerned with the pursuit of fine arts, painting, music and poetry, had the difficult task of judging more than 100 entries.

Club chair Sue Palmer said: "The opening evening went well with many people attending. I did hear someone say it was a cracking exhibition, which I thought did it credit.  

"There were 130 original, framed pictures of  many different mediums, of many different subjects, from local landmarks to holiday destinations not to forget those of treasured pets and animals." 

The art club meets at the Avon Room at Hanham Community Centre on Thursday evenings from 7-9pm, and have a range of artists at all levels. 

There are a few spaces available for anyone who would like to join, and the club offers free taster sessions.
