WHETHER you prefer thoughtful abstract paintings, light-filled atmospheric landscapes or vibrant gutsy artworks, there is something for everyone at Harpenden Arts Club's annual exhibition.

There will be a variety of original works ranging from paintings and drawings to fused glass and sculpture being shown by local new and established artists.

Harpenden Arts Club is undergoing a regeneration and is attracting many new members of all abilities to its weekly programme of creative workshops, demonstrations, life classes and art practice sessions on Thursday evenings at Harpenden Public Halls.

Three of the featured artists this year are Heather Fitz, Jayne Evans and Peter Brown, membership secretary of the club, whose work is shown here.

Heather, who lives in Harpenden, loves producing watercolours of animals, and particularly hares. She says: "Hares have captured my heart for years, I love their quirky awkwardness, their large eyes, their ears that are so pronounced and flexible and they make me smile."

Jayne Evans' mixed media works, she says, "are inspired by fairytales, literature, film, comics and music, rainy days and a few of my favourite places in Wales".

Peter Brown says: "As I have lived in Hertfordshire for the last 30 years I know the area well and the countryside provides me with a wealth of subjects at any time of year. I spend some of the year in Spain which gives me a different range of light and colours."
