Mike Dobson, Paul Human and Rowland will showcase their eclectic work at Curwens Art Gallery in High Street.
The trio have very different styles and interests.

The third artist – Row Penfold – specialises in wood turning, with a strong emphasis on the shape and form of bowls.
His art is mainly made of homegrown timbers with other materials integrated into it.
The exhibition will run from July 15 until mid September and will be open weekdays only from 9.30am until 4.30pm.
A preview evening will be held on July 22 from 6pm until 8pm.
Light refreshments will be served at the event.
For more than five years, local artists have exhibited work at the Curwens Solicitors office in the High Street.
The idea was to liven up what was a very long and bare wall.
The exhibition is free to the public to pop in and take a look anytime.
