Salon 8 hosts work of ten artists

Salon 8 a contemporary art exhibition at The Old Lock Up Studio in Cromford will be  showing the work of ten contemporary artists from across the UK and a New York artist – Paul Behnke.

The Salon shows, which were started by Cromford artist Rachael Pinks as one-night-only affairs, have become a cultural highlight in the area’s calendar where you can both admire and buy work by some exceptional fine artists.

The studio is hidden away up stone steps off a tiny alley called Swift’s Hollow.

“The Salon exhibitions are very professionally curated with a range of great art work. Enough to recommend it by itself, but the fab location really turns them into something special,” said one visitor at the last event.

The exhibition opens on April 22 from 6-9pm and continues during the weekend on April 23 and 24 from 11-4pm.

You will also be able to see work by Geoff Diego Litherland, who was featured in last month’s artsbeat, Rebecca Appleby, Jackie Berridge, Claudia Boese, Rachel Pinks, Mandy Payne, Terry Greene, Lisa Denyer and Clay Smith
