The art trail, which runs until June 15, launched last Saturday and adurArtcollective said there had been a lot of favourable comments during the first weekend, about the variety and high quality of work on display.

A preview of the main Centerpiece exhibition, at St Mary’s Hall in East Street, Shoreham, was held last Friday evening.

Chris Howitt, secretary of adurArtcollective, said: “The preview was a very busy event and there were lots of visitors over the weekend. Many people have commented that it gets better each year, which is lovely to hear.”

Centerpiece features a variety of works, including paintings, mosaics, stained glass, knitwear, ceramics, sculptures and jewellery.

There are also artists’ open houses and houseboats on the trail, as well as talks, walks and workshops for all ages.

Mrs Howitt said: “We would really like to encourage people to visit the more outlying venues, as well as those in the centre of Shoreham.

“There is lots of excellent work to be seen there, too, and if you think it is too far to walk, then there is easy parking.

As well as homes, venues include Shoreham Gallery, Shoreham Methodist Church, St Nicolas Church and St Mary de Haura Church in Shoreham, Toast by the Coast in East Street, Shoreham, West Street Loft and Southwick Community Church.
