Variety will be the theme of an art exhibition which promises to be among the highlights of Buxton Fringe.

Artists who have chosen to work with fabric for the first time will be among those displaying their work in the Burbage Art Group’s showcase.

Organiser Rachel Slaney said: “We hope to have examples of weaving as well as various fabric and embroidery collages this summer as well as our usual mix of watercolours, acrylics, mixed media and pen and inks.”

One of Burbage’s artists, Laura Critchlow has had a painting exhibited by the Royal Society of Miniature Painters in London. Although the friendly group caters for all abilities, several of the artists have been nominated for Fringe Awards in the past.

Views of Derbyshire, animals, portraiture, abstracts and exotic landscapes are among the subject matter for the exhibits which will be on show at the Burbage Institute on Saturday, July 16, from 11am to 3pm.

A free event, the show includes cakes and refreshments plus a children’s quiz with a certificate and balloon for all completed sheets.

Burbage Art Group meets weekly during school term times on Wednesday nights at Burbage Institute in Buxton.

The group also sponsors young artists from Buxton Community School, usually featuring their exciting work at the exhibition.

Anyone wanting further information about the exhibition or pay-as-you-go classes should call Rachel on 01538 266220.
