  Landscapes, nudes, abstracts and still life paintings are among the artworks on display at a free exhibition this summer.

The St Albans Art Society Summer Exhibition 2014 was opened by St Albans Mayor, Geoff Harrison, last Thursday.

Artist John May, together with Jude Dyson and Geraint John from St Albans Civic Society, judged the entrants for the society’s awards and the Mayor presented the trophies to the winners.

Councillor Harrison said: "I want to congratulate the artists whose work is on display at the exhibition. 

"The standard is extremely high and I was inspired by the variety of media and wide range of subjects. St Albans Art Society plays a very important part in the cultural heritage of our district and I encourage everyone to visit its exhibition."

Edward Bevin, chairman of St Albans Art Society, said: "We are grateful to the mayor for opening our annual exhibition which displays work from many of our 220 members. 

"Our society aims to encourage excellence in the visual arts, and we welcome new members. Once again the quality of art on display is very impressive and we hope that many people will come along to see the works for themselves."

The free exhibition runs from July 18 to 26 and includes almost 250 pieces of art from 84 exhibitors. 

The exhibition is open from 10am to 6pm, in the old Town Hall, St Albans.
