A WIDE display of artwork will be on show at Napton Village Hall this weekend.

The exhibition by Napton Art Group will feature dozens of paintings, including watercolours, acrylics, oil paintings, pastels and drawings created by its members.

They will be available to buy along with other crafts from 10am and 5pm on both Saturday and Sunday.

Entrance is 50p and a number of home-baked refreshments and tea and coffee will be served.

It will be the first exhibition of the year for the group with more planned throughout 2012.

The group, which meets at the village hall every Thursday between 2pm and 4pm, was set up 45 years ago by Peggy Shiner. It was originally designed for people in the village but people come from far and wide to enjoy the company and encouraging atmosphere.

They enjoy practical workshops and demonstrations from well-known artists.
