PREPARATIONS are well under way for the 19th annual Kelbrook Art Exhibition to be held over the August Bank holiday weekend in the Village Hall.

With 20 per cent of exhibits sold in previous years, artists are invited to exhibit their works.

Charges are £1.50 per exhibit and 10 per cent commission on sales.

Artwork donated by local artist Pamela Chapman will be a raffle prize at the event.

A spokesman for the exhibition said: "This event has gone from strength to strength and it is no wonder as we have a lovely village setting, homemade refreshments served in a modern tea room and terrace and varied and reasonably priced artwork on display."

Anyone wishing to exhibit can contact Jackie Barker on 01282 813305.

All proceeds are donated to charity.
