Artists exhibit at top event

Five Belper artists are preparing to showcase their work at an open studios event, organised by the University of Derby.

Artists Carol Harries-Wood, Ruth Gray, Sarah-Jane Muskett and Jenny Oldknow, plus jeweller Rachel Emmerson, will be exhibiting their work at the event, which runs from November 22 – 24 at Banks Mill in Derby.

The event has grown over the last decade to attract hundreds of visitors. This year, more than 70 artists and designer-makers will be displaying some of the city’s finest art and artistic products.

Spokesman Laura Williams, said: “It has grown to be such a success that this year we have had to expand the event to accommodate our many visitors at a second venue.”
