Talented trio

ARTWORK from a trio of talented painters will be on display at The Chantry in Morpeth this month.

The exhibition from Stephen Ward, Lynda Swift and Ivan Webley, which began yesterday, will include original works, along with prints and cards.

Lynda and Ivan have both lived and painted in Morpeth for many years. Ivan paints local scenes in watercolour and gouache, while Lynda has a diverse range of subjects and is also a craft worker and designer.

Stephen was tempted away from the south east while studying at Newcastle University. He now lives in Durham and paints north east scenes in watercolour.

The exhibition runs between Mondays and Saturdays, from 9.30am to 5pm each day, until June 30.
