Both buyers and those interested in contemporary art are welcome at the exhibition. Ophelia Redpath, one of the artists whose work will be displayed, said: "This is a great opportunity for an active involvement in an art event.
"It offers a unique chance for the public to buy works which may not otherwise be exhibited."
