A POP-up art workshop is hosting an exhibition from north of the border.
Community enterprise WillyNillie has taken over a former fruiterers at 156b Front Street, Chester-le-Street, for three months.
Its latest display will be paintings, prints and tapestries from artists who studied at Edinburgh College of Art.
Sharon Gollan, one of the directors of WillyNillie said: “There’s been so much interest in WillyNillie since we opened in July and the response from residents and the people in Chester-le-Street has been fantastic.
“The events over the summer with the Ashes and the Gospels seem to have really raised the profile of Chester-le-Street.
“We’ve had so many visitors to our shop from people wanting to take up classes and workshops, or to visit our exhibitions of work from North- East artists.
“We’re delighted to be bringing this new collection to the town from artists who exhibit nationally and internationally.”
The show opens to the public with a preview on Saturday (September 7) from 3 to 5 pm. People can see the exhibition on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays until September 28 between 10am and 4pm. Admission is free.
