Halstead Art Group is making good use of an empty shop in Halstead High Street.

The group, who will be celebrating their 40th year next year, are loaning the shop front to display their work.

The artwork is changed once a month and people can purchase any pieces they wish by phoning the number displayed.

They have also organised for an art demonstration at the Ramsey College on September 29 from 7pm until 9pm, where professional artist David Passfield will be doing a water colour landscape. Entrance is £5.
