The art exhibition Images of Summer continues at the Fylde Gallery, within Booths store, Haven Road, Lytham until October 9.

Presented by the Friends of the Lytham St Annes Art Collection, the exhibition features a total of 35 works, the majority of them from the Collection, including The Herd Laddie by Richard Ansdell.

But also among the paintings on show – all of which have a summer theme – are some borrowed from the collection held at the Grundy Art Gallery in Blackpool, including the striking Sunshine and Shadow in Epping Forest by FH Glasbury.

There are others by local artists, including some founder members of the Lytham St Annes Art Society, such as Walter Woodhead and Harold Partington.

The exhibition is the first of several to be sponsored by the Heritage Lottery Fund awarded to Fylde Decorative and Fine Art Society for their project Tagging The Treasures, which entails Fylde DAFS working with the Friends to catalogue the whole Lytham St Annes Art Collection.

“It is an exhibition full of some real delights and we are delighted with the range of works on show,” said Friends chairman Margaret Race.

The Gallery is open 10am-4pm Monday to Saturday and 10am-3.30pm Sundays.
