WORK by Ludlow artists is on display in the town.

The Ludlow Art Society summer exhibition has opened in the Harley Centre at Ludlow College.

It is the second show of the year for the society but is the main annual showcase for members to show off their work.

The private view was held on the evening of Friday August 15, to live music from Jack Brett and drinks and nibbles provided by Susanna Checketts and Lesley Connolly.

There was a table of work from Loudwater Studios, which is sponsored by the VisionHomes charity, and a display of painting from the late Jean Williams, former chair of the Ludlow Art Society.

Ludlow Open curator Jo King formally opened the show, and one of the prizes, the Silk Top Hat choice, was awarded to George Loades for his painting Above Dhustone.

The other prizes (for the Ludlow Brewery choice, the Chang Thai choice, and the Castle Bookshop choice) will be awarded soon.

Ludlow Art Society’s summer exhibition is open until Monday August 25.
