Anniversary exhibition attracts quality works
Seaton and District Art Society draws high praise from visitors to its 40th birthday show
Seaton and District Art Society’s 40th annual exhibition received high praise from visitors.

The Maggie Lodge Rose Bowl was presented to Magie Luff for “Lillies” while Joyce Fountain’s delightful watercolour of “Llanberris Pass”, North Wales, where she spent many a holiday, won her the Devon Framer’s Cup.
