The work of a Blythburgh artist has been selected from more than 1,800 entries to appear in an annual exhibition of Britain’s leading oil painters.

Mary Gundry’s painting ‘Working Men in the Field’ will feature in the Royal Institute of Oil Painters (ROI) annual show.

The ROI exhibition will take place at The Mall Galleries, in London, from Wednesday, November 29, to Sunday, December 10.

Her work previously appeared in the show in 2014.

A spokesman said: “Each year the very best work from national and international submission is chosen.”

Ms Gundry’s successful entry was inspired by the work of Edwardian artist Harry Becker – who is buried at Blythburgh church.

She has been painting professionally for over 25 years and is best known for her portrayals of children playing on local beaches, particularly Southwold.
