The judges told us they received an impressive response to the call for entries saying “the range of entries illustrates not only the amount and diversity of artistic talent in the County, but also the inspiration provided by our varied local landscapes.” Jonathan Wallis, head of Derby Museums and Art gallery noted “It is great to see that Derbyshire’s rich heritage of landscape painting is alive and thriving in the work of contemporary artists”.
