WESTON seafront is generally at its most colourful in the summer, but more than 20 artists braved the typical winter blues to brighten it up this week.

The Grand Pier launch event, organised by the Digital Photo Studio (DPS), featured various kinds of work from first-time and award winning artists.

And as part of the exhibition, a 50-metre banner was unfurled by members of the Digerati and Glitterati groups based in Somerset and Bristol.

The pair specialise in all kinds of artwork including sculpture, collage, tattoo and street artistry as well as more traditional art mediums such as portraits and seascapes.

DPS, who specialise in turning paper prints into a digital format, then held a reception at the Gallery in Locking Road, Weston as they celebrated launching a new community hub and a new exhibition.
