Award-winning artists are the next to put their work on display at the Baldock Arts and Heritage Centre as the team bid to get more punters through the doors of the old town hall.

Laura Valentine of the arts and heritage centre, who helped to launch the gallery space as a new venture in October, said: “We had a fantastic start with the private view launch of our first exhibition at the end of April when more than 50 people attended.

“The centre was buzzing and we sold more than 20 per cent of the exhibits that evening.

“Our two exhibitors are Lisa Price who specialises in abstract art using acrylics and mixed media and Karen Mangold who works largely with watercolours and produces contemporary nature-inspired art.”

The exhibition is on display until July and can be viewed every Friday and Saturday between 10am and 2pm.
