Rachel Pepper, ACF community development organiser commented: "Summer Exhibition 2010 is a great opportunity for the arts community to come together and display the creative arts from a rich mix of professional and community arts.  The exhibition will showcase artists and reflect the diversity and talent of our local communities."
