The National Trust in the White Peak are hosting a series of art exhibitions and events during April.

The backdrop of beautiful Ilam Park and Dovedale will be the setting for three art exhibitions by modern and historical artists.

On Friday April 6, from 11am-5pm, there will be a free art exhibition by Mark Langley in the Ilam Park Visitor Centre of animal portraits, architecture studies and transport studies.

Join the Romantics and walk in Turner’s Footsteps in Dovedale on Saturday April 14, from 10am-4pm. See reproductions of 18th and 19th century pictures of Dovedale held by Buxton Museum and Derby Museum and Art Gallery in the landscape that inspired them. There will also be the opportunity to create your own artwork to take away (£3).

On Sunday April 29, between 11am-5pm, the Fine Art students from the University of Derby will hold a free outdoor exhibition of sculpture created during a week-long residential at Ilam Park.

The exhibition entitled Land Art will showcase the talents of the students who have been inspired by the beautiful surroundings of Ilam.
