Auctioneers Blyth and Co will stage the auction at the Fenlord Auction Rooms in Market Place on Saturday, March 24, at the end of a week's viewing of the work.

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."
