It was opened by society chairman Mo Teeuw and is open Wednesday to Sunday, 10.30am to 4pm.

Visitors can enjoy members’ work and vote on their favourite work for the People’s Choice Award.

The society was started during the First World War to provide therapy for wounded soldiers recovering in the town’s Johnson Hospital.

One hundred years later, around 60 members meet for demonstrations by visiting artists at Pinchbeck Village Hall on the first Tuesday of every month, from 7.30pm to around 9.30pm.

On June 7 Peter Barker will be demonstrating oils and on July 5 David Hyde’s medium will be wildlife in acrylic.
