Hampshaw said the exhibition was a good opportunity for the six-person group to showcase their talents.

“There is quite a diverse mix of art — something for everyone,” she said.

“There will also be seascapes and landscapes of the local area.”

The group often take small trips away to places like Busselton and Dwellingup for inspiration and have created an impressive number of pieces, with more than 40 on show at the exhibition.
