A popular arts centre in Aylesbury has announced a free exhibition and workshop activities to mark Bucks Art Weeks.
This year’s event, which is taking place at Queens Park Arts Centre, is themed around exploring texture in nature through charcoal and textiles.
Starting on Saturday (10 June), the arts centre is hosting a county-wide celebration of hundreds of contemporary artists and makers for the annual Bucks Art Weeks event.
As part of the Artisan project visitors can enjoy a free-to-view exhibition.
The Bucks Art Weeks Artisan exhibition focuses on the work of Marie Jones and Rosie Blacher, and charcoal artist Liz Cotgreave.
All three local artists will take part in a free two-week exhibition as part of the Artisan space, along with free artist demonstrations and drop-in sessions.
