The Maitland Regional Society of Artists annual art exhibition has been a showcase of local talent for two decades and its organisers aren’t showing any signs of slowing down.

The creative tradition will continue this weekend at Morpeth’s St James’ Anglican Church hall.

According to member Chris Lucas, the three-day event will be quite the treat for Maitland’s art enthusiasts.

“It gives the Maitland public a chance to come along and enjoy some art,” he said.

More than 200 works in a range of styles and mediums will be on display – from paintings and pastel drawings to sculptures.

Visitors can take a piece of the show home too, with works on sale at varying prices between $80 and several hundred dollars.

All are invited to the opening night celebrations on Friday, between 6pm and 8pm.

Entry is $10 and includes drinks and finger food.

The exhibition will remain open from 10am to 4pm on Saturday, and between 10am to 3pm on Sunday.
