All change for June at Studio 61 Gallery

New Exhibition and Print Room

Derbyshire Open Arts was a great excuse to have a move around in the gallery after the exhibitors left the walls were emptied and rearranged and now there are clearly defined areas within each room of the gallery. The former snug has become the showcase for our exhibitions by guest artists and a place where customers can browse in peace through our vast array of fine art prints and cards and view the framed original works on the walls.

Karinas Working Studio
Karina has now taken over the main area as her work has diversified into oils as well as watercolours, this area is bigger and allows her to continue her tuition and display her work. Karina welcomes visitors to view her working at the easel. Always glad to discuss her works in progress with customers over a coffee.

Quick Cuppa and Textile Jewelry Gift Room

Speaking of coffee! There is a wider range of beverages and snacks available to purchase and a couple of tables inside and outside for customers who may have walked or who are just stopping by for a browse.
And don't forget our famous pot noodles perfect for warming you up if caught out in the rain on a ramble in our beautiful local hillsides!
