Northants Open Studios, the month-long annual celebration of local artistic talent, has launched with the unveiling of its central exhibition.
Art enthusiasts and artists gathered at Lamport Hall for the visual feast of creativity on Saturday (September 2).
Deputy Lieutenant Amanda Lowther officially opened the showcase of 448 art pieces in the transformed Coach House and Stable blocks.
Katie Boyce, the director and festival organiser of Northants Open Studios, emphasised the significance of the central exhibition.
She said: “The Central Exhibition is an opportunity for you to witness first hand the diverse range of artistry that our county has to offer.
“Take this chance to not just admire the beauty of the artworks, but also to connect with the passion and dedication that breathe life into each creation.”
Many visitors to the show bought exhibited artworks – a boost for local artists.
The month-long event continues from Wednesday to Sunday, 10am to 4pm during September.
Visitors to the exhibition at Lamport Hall can take part in the Public's Favourite Award, the winner of which will receive £200, sponsored by Kettering & District Art Society.
Artists will be opening their studios and workspaces to visitors throughout the month with painters, potters, photographers and visual artists opening their doors.
