Dozens of works of art by talented town artists are on display now in the art club’s annual show at Hartlepool Art Gallery.

As always, the popular exhibition includes representative and experimental work in a variety of techniques and subject matter.

Among the many paintings and drawings on display include local scenes such as our own HMS Trincomalee, the Headland and the marina.

The Yorkshire countryside, waterways of Venice and cobbled streets of Amsterdam have also provided rich inspiration for this year’s stunning collection.

Many of the works are available to buy.
