A NEW art exhibition is to be hosted at the Penarth esplanade's Pier Pavilion this month, celebrating the work of local artists from the Vale of Glamorgan Artists Group (VOGA).

'Voga @ the Pavilion' is an exhibition designed to showcase the variety of styles and techniques that reflect the group’s diversity and eclecticism.

One of the standout paintings from the exhibition is 'Paris' by Richard O’Connell, which depicts a view from the rooftops of Saint-Germain with Montmarte and the Eiffel Tower in the distance.

The painting also includes a harlequin and a guitar player, giving the piece a sense of Bohemian mystery. The entire painting is in shades of red.

Also featured in the show are a series of small portrait busts by Pam Jones, along with the ceramic works of Rebecca Clark.

Nina Lazarou has constructed a wire-framed horse for the display, while Nia Bennet has contributed small stone carvings with finely cut calligraphic statements.

Alan Brown's paintings focus on women's issues, and are complemented by poems written on the theme of abusive behaviour.

And digital art imagery is also represented by the work of Bernard van Hierop.

Others artists' work being displayed include: Judy Stephens, Eve Hart, Gwyn Price, Ann Townson, Sue Edwards and Pauline Williams.

The exhibition begins on Friday, April 6 from 6pm and is open every day except Mondays from 10am to 5.30pm thereafter.

The exhibition concludes on Sunday, April 22. Admission is free.
