A group of four Porthcawl artists and photographers are busy preparing an unusual and stunning variety of locally-produced art for their unique summer art show this weekend.

The exhibition is in support of the local RNLI funds and will be open to the public, free of charge at Beach Road, Newton Beach, Porthcawl CF36 5NE from 10am to 5pm on August 12-13.

Photographer Sue Salton numbers the Royal ousehold and St Paul’s Cathedral among her star-studded clients. Since moving to her beach front studio in Newton, she has been “bowled over by the ever-changing Porthcawl seascapes, sunrises and sunsets” which greet her every morning.

Her photographer’s eye and state of the art presentation means that even those of us who share the vista every day are given the opportunity to see it through her uniquely talented eyes.

Award winning expressionist painter Bee Lilli, founder and editor of Facebook’s Porthcawl Artists Online Gallery, describes herself as “Painting For Joy”.

From her studio in Hutchwns Close, she uses a variety of mixed media to share her eclectic artistic vision. Inspired by nature in all its moods, her latest award was given for a view from Locks Common with Sker House and the steelworks in the distance.

Bee’s enthusiasm for her art shines through all her work.

Well known local wildlife artist Graham Anderson will exhibit a collection of local images and paintings inspired by nature in all its moods. Graham has a unique style of painting with oils, which captures birds animals and landscape in is own special style.

Found object artist Gail Ivins conjures enchantment from pebbles, sticks and everyday objects from beaches and gardens in an art form we can all relate to with subjects such as family, the sea, romance and landscape.
