Art lovers descended on Deja Vu Cafe on Saturday night for the annual Cherry Festival Art Exhibition.

The exhibition features more than 30 artworks from local artists Paula Benson, Paul Fontanini, Fay Dunstan and Carol Hackett.

People who attended the exhibition opening on Saturday voted in a people’s choice, which was then tied between Fontanini’s Water Lilies and Hackett’s Mystique.

The exhibition will be on display at Deja Vu Cafe until after the Manjimup Cherry Harmony Festival on December 14.

Festival co-ordinator Pam Bodsworth thanked the artists, sponsors and community for their support of the exhibition.

“It’s marvellous to see so many people here to support our artists,” Mrs Bodsworth said.

“We have a donation box going around to raise money for the Cherry Festival.”

It will be the last year the 2019 Cherry Festival Art Exhibition will be the held at Deja Vu Cafe as the business is closing soon.

Benson said they were looking for a new location to hold the exhibition next year.
