Artists en plein air in spa town

The artists taking part in the 2016 Buxton Spa Prize have now been allocated their space in the town from where they will paint en-plein-air.

Over the next few weeks you will be able to watch them in action as they attempt to win the £5,000 prize.

The Buxton Spa Prize is an open art competition to celebrate the town’s culture, natural beauty and heritage.

Almost 140 artists have entered this year and their finished work will be exhibited at The Green Man Gallery from July 1-August 14.
