Foxton Village Hall was awash with colour for the village’s annual art exhibition which welcomed 70 artists and 420 pieces of art including oil paintings, photographs, watercolours and glassware.

Exhibition organiser Jane Price said: “We are very proud of the fact that there is a record breaking number of entries for this, our 12th annual show.

“This has also been our best attended exhibition so far. We are very fortunate to have such a wealth of artistic talent in our area.

“We have, as usual, encouraged the public attending to vote for their favourite exhibit.”

All proceeds from the exhibition went towards Foxton Primary School to provide the children with arts education materials and resources with an emphasis on encouraging and developing artistic ability.
