Three North Somerset artists will host an art exhibition at Weston Old Town Quarry, South Road, running until August 13.

Mandy Roswell, Jackie Savage and Lucy James explained how they were drawn together by friendship, a love of nature and a desire to paint outside.

Jackie said her artistic flame was put out by the coronavirus pandemic, but news of her and her friends’ first art exhibition going ahead reignited her passion.

She said: “We, like many artists, have struggled with the artistic process through lockdown.

This is the first art exhibition showcasing the three friends' works.

“Although friendship has been a real comfort, we haven’t been able to meet up and share ideas. The news that our exhibition can go ahead has fuelled our desire to create fresh work to share with people.

“It has, however, been a real challenge to get the pictures framed in time! It will be lovely to meet and chat with likeminded visitors at the exhibition.”
