An exhibition showcasing diverse artwork created by artists of all abilities was opened in Maidenhead on Saturday.
The 95 pieces of art by members of the Maidenhead Painting Club are being displayed at Maidenhead Library until Thursday, April 18.
Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead, Cllr Colin Rayner, opened the club's spring exhibition at the St Ives Road library.
Pictures featuring oils, acrylics, watercolours, pastels, etching, collages and other styles of painting are on display.
All genres are represented from landscape, to portfolio, still life, abstracts and contemporary. Members have painted them over the last year or two.
In opening it, Cllr Rayner said it was a 'celebration' of art in Maidenhead and it was 'great to see so much talent'.
Organiser and club member Pamela Clarke, of Grenfell Road, who has her own contemporary works on display, said the standard of work by artists in it is 'great'.
The 61-year-old, who has been a member for more than 10 years said: "The club is for everyone and inclusive of every ability from beginners up to professionals.
"We aim to inspire and encourage artists."
The club was started in 1978 and now boasts 150 members of all ages who meet up for regular workshops and sessions.
