Last Minute Artists is a new exhibition at Arts@theCrypt in Seaford next weekend.

The show can be viewed on Saturday July 30, and Sunday July 31.

Six people are making their debut with the Last Minute Artists pop-up exhibition.

The new signings are Lynn Beck, Richard Walkley, Julie Basham, Clare Van Moppes, Camilla Pennant and Janie Huggins.

They are showing their work alongside other exhibitors in the Church Street gallery including Dawn Wells, Mike Harrison, Pat Short, Rosemary Yeulet, Jon Perry and Lisa Taylor.

Richard Walkley said: “I love to use bright watercolours to convey to the viewer some of the beauty, both natural and man-made,that is all around us. In particular I enjoy putting my own interpretation on a scene in order to draw the viewer into a painting and make them wish they were there.

“When I am out and about I usually have my sketch book and paints with me. These coloured sketches are a great help when painting a larger image back home.”

Visitors will also have the opportunity to buy prints and cards from the organisers and the gallery will be open from 10am until 4.30pm on Saturday and Sunday.
