The Northumberland coastline is the inspiration for the latest exhibition at an art gallery in the county.

The show, entitled Coast, is on display now at Felton’s Gallery 45 and runs until Friday, April 1.

It features work by six artists from across the North East using a variety of media to depict Northumberland’s beaches.

Fiona Carvell, of Shotley Bridge, near Consett in County Durham, paints in soft pastels, bringing a vibrancy and richness of colour to her landscape compositions.

Pencil and monochrome pastels are used by Peter Davidson, formerly of Ashington but now living in nearby Ellington.

Deirdre Foster, of Shilbottle, will be showcasing her driftwood art made using pieces of wood washed ashore on beaches in Northumberland.

Linda Mumba, of Durham City, creates impressionistic paintings mainly using acrylics.

Work by Sarah O’Dowd, in oil and acrylics, and George Levitt, in watercolours, will also be on display.

The exhibition is open on Tuesdays to Saturdays, from 10am to 5pm, and on Sundays, from 11am to 4pm.

There will also be a chance to meet the artists at the gallery on Saturday, from 11am to 1pm.
