This May Bank Holiday Torr Vale Mill continues its emergence as an events location with twenty artists arriving for the nationally acclaimed Derbyshire Open Arts weekend.
The historic setting, nestled in the fold of the Goyt river gorge, will provide a stunning showcase for an exciting collection of contemporary work from national and regional artists brought together especially for the event by the not-for-profit and artist-led, New Mills Arts.
Co-organiser Debs Pitman says:
“In 2012, 275 artists and craftspeople welcomed over 17,000 visitors at 95 venues across Derbyshire. This year there are even more artists and venues and with New Mills fast becoming one of the ‘hot spots’ on the map we are positive that we will again be attracting significant numbers to the area.”
Venues across the town, including Torr Vale Mill, open from 11am – 5pm daily during the event. Exhibits include print, photography, painting, sculpture, mosaic and much more, with the artists on hand to share insights into their creativity.
New Mills Arts in conjunction with Torr Vale Mill, are delighted to add this venue and curated exhibition to the many other well-established venues in the town such as, Mellor Road Artists, Jim and Gladys Textiles, Springbank Arts Centre and The Textile House, details of which can be found on Derbyshire Open Arts’ website.
