MORE than 100 pieces of art, from watercolours to bold prints, are currently on display in Abingdon.

The eclectic exhibition is Abingdon Artists’ annual autumn show.

Unlike many similar displays it is not curated or judged, with all members able to enter three pieces entirely of their own choosing.

The free show opened yesterday and will run until Saturday at the Barn at Christ Church in Northcourt Road. It is open between 10am and 4.30pm each day, except for the final day when it will be open until 5pm.

This year, the second in the church venue, 41 members have entered 117 paintings, the majority of which are for sale, together with unframed paintings and prints and a selection of cards.

Also on sale will be the group’s calendar, featuring work by 27 members.

Abingdon Artists was set up in 1990 by Pat Tayler with the aim of bringing art into the community by providing opportunities for people to meet and discuss their artistic interests.

As well as a regular monthly talk, demo or workshop at which visitors are welcome, they have a weekly informal afternoon art group and a fortnightly outdoor sketching group known as Quick on the Draw.

There are regularly changing displays by members in various venues in the town in their Artist for the Month programme. Members also participate in Oxfordshire Artweeks.
