Artists and makers across Derbyshire will be showcasing their work in studios, galleries and community venues over the bank holiday weekend.

Established in 2006, Derbyshire Open Arts is now a regular weekend out for those with an interest in the visual arts.

Artists open up their own homes and studios to give demonstrations and workshops, while others choose to exhibit in groups at venues within their local community.

All venues offers free entry, and the opportunity for visitors to see and buy a range of work made by local artists.

Among the exhibitors will be five members of Hathersage Contemporay Art Group, Anthony Marshall, Pauline Rignall, Mark Tolson, Debbie Michaels and Jonathan Michaels.

Their paintings will be on show at the Moorland House Residential Home, Station Road, Hathersage, from May 24 to 26, 11am until 5pm.

There will be a special viewing for residents and their families on the Friday evening and an opportunity to meet all the artists on Bank Holiday Monday from 2.30pm to 4.30pm.

Derbyshire Open Arts runs from May 24-26. Details of exhibiting artists, and their location, are available on the website: www.derbyshireopenarts.co.uk. Brochures are available in all tourist centres and libraries and from participating artists.
