The Society of Artists Newcastle will hold its annual Raymond Terrace exhibition at the end of July.

Among the works will be a special piece from society life member and Raymond Terrace artist Florence Humphreys.

Ms Humphreys is affectionately called the “teapot lady” for her well-known work of painting porcelain teapots. 

While she will not be showing teapots in the Raymond Terrace show, Mrs Humphreys has created a hanging artwork of wildflowers painted on porcelain.

“I’ve had this one done for a little while, but it hasn’t been in an exhibition before,” Mrs Humphreys said.

“This is a porcelain painting of wildflowers, framed for hanging.”

More than 100 pieces of hanging art will go on show in MarketPlace Raymond Terrace on Monday, July 24.

They will be available to see, and buy, outside Big W inside MarketPlace until Sunday, July 30.

Many of the featured artists, including Ms Humphreys, will man the display throughout the week and will be available to talk with about the artworks.
