Shropshire Art Society is welcoming visitors to its annual summer art exhibition in Shrewsbury.

Located in St Mary's Church, the free exhibition was opened last week by Deputy Lieutenant Katherine Garnier and continues until July 6. It takes place from 10am-4pm each day, excluding Sundays.

All pictures at the exhibition, along with a selection of cards, will be available for sale.

The summer exhibition showcases a selection of over 160 fantastic original artworks by Shropshire Art Society members.

At the opening, Paul Cronin was presented with the Judy Townsend Memorial Prize on behalf of the society and the Townsend family for his work 'Gannetry'.

Shropshire Art Society, formed in 1948, boasts a membership of more than 200 artists from around the county, working with a wide range of materials and subject matter.

The summer exhibition is one of two held in Shrewsbury, with the second autumn exhibition in October, at the Bear Steps Art Gallery.
