Original art and local work are being showcased at a new exhibition at the Castle Park Arts Centre in Frodsham.

There will also be a chance to meet the artists at an open evening from 7pm-9pm on Friday (February 26).

The exhibition, which runs until April 3, is split into four galleries.

They include a gallery by artist Derek Mercer, who has painted a selection of landscapes from the Lake District National Park.

Up Up and Away by Christine Howard features a collection of her work in three genres: rural, industrial and coastal.
