TALENTED artists got the chance to show off their colourful creations at a special event in Bishopton.

Members of the Bishopton Art Group hosted their bi-annual fair on Saturday, with impressive paintings adorning the walls of the village’s community centre.

And, as an added bonus, each of the artists donated some home-baking for visitors to tuck into.

There was also a number of craft stalls selling jewellery, pottery, knitwear and handbags, while tea and coffee was on offer too.

Ronnie Dukes, committee member, said: “It was probably our busiest ever fair. The weather was excellent and I think that helped attract people to the event.

“It’s absolutely incredible what these artists produce and they paint in all sorts of styles.

“We really appreciate everyone showing their support, not just for the artists but also for the people which had craft stands at the event.

“All of the money raised will help the group to meet its expenses.”

The group is made up of around 20 artists, most of whom are amateur, although there are some who have professional qualifications.

Winner of the best painting prize at the fair, chosen by visitors, was Rose Speirs.

Ronnie added: “I think the visitors always enjoy choosing their favourite and they got the chance to win a £10 voucher if they nominated someone.

“This year, Judith Mitchell’s name came out of the hat, so congratulations to her.”

The group will hold another exhibition next March.
