From beginner hobby painters to accomplished artists, more than 45 inspired members shared their special projects in a range of media from oils, water colours, acrylics and pastels.
Beautiful pieces of art filled the walls of the two-roomed studio in New Longton Village Hall and chairman John Croft said the latest exhibition demonstrated just how the society continued to go from ‘strength to strength.
He says: “It has just been brilliant and we’re looking forward to the next 50 years.”

Brian says the group is open to anyone who would like to try their hand at art, regardless of experience.
On Wednesday June 20, Blackpool artist Graham Berry will lead the group through a session on watercolour techniques.
