Thirty five members will exhibit their works in a display featuring artists, designer-makers and contemporary craftspeople from across the Peak District.

PDA chairman, Ingrid Karlsson-Kemp said: “We are incredibly excited about next year’s Spring Showcase, what better way to mark the opening of our 25th anniversary year than by returning to where it all began.

“Over the past 25 years the group has evolved in so many ways. We now have 65 very talented members who each contribute to our annual exhibition programme, as well as running their own art businesses. Next year is going to be a very busy and exciting year,” she added.

The artists taking part include Sue Gorman, Steve Elliott, Gary Sampson, John Rattigan, Janet Mayled (work pictured), Justine Nettleton, Michela Griffith, Tim Rose, Maggie Robinson, Jill Ray, Ann Bates, Ros Smith, Sarah Sharpe, Ian Saville and Sandra Orme.

The exhibition, which runs daily 10.30am-3.30pm, will open on January 6 and run until March 13. For more information and to view a selection of members’ work go to
