A SHOWCASE for local artists has celebrated its first birthday.

The Art on the Pier events at South Parade Pier in Southsea started last Easter to give artists a place to show off their talents and sell their works.

Regularly attracting more than 30 exhibitors, the quarterly events have proved to be a great success.

The next events will be on Sunday, July 31 and November 13.
