The group will hold a three-day exhibition called Colours by the sea at the Sorrento Surf Life Saving Club from Friday, June 21.

Watercolour painter Susan Payne said in the past two years, they used the exhibition to raise funds for Wangara charity Wheelchairs for Kids, and would do so again this weekend.

‘In 2011 we raised enough funds from our raffle for 10 wheelchairs,’ she said. ‘Last year it was enough for 11 wheelchairs so naturally, this year we are aiming to raise enough funds for 12 wheelchairs.’

Fifteen artists will have work on display in a variety of mediums, including watercolours, acrylics, oils, mixed media and photographs.

The Sorrento SLSC will be running their SO Cafe alongside the exhibition, providing refreshments and meals.
