ORGANISERS of an annual art exhibition are relying on Darwen artists to submit their masterpieces.

The pictures can be watercolours or oils and on any subject.

They will be put on display in Sunnyhurst Wood Visitor Centre, Darwen, between June 19 and August 1.

Peter Coultherd, senior warden at Blackburn with Darwen's community, leisure and cultural services department said: "This is a Darwen only exhibition aimed at artists who have a Darwen postal address.

"Last year's exhibition was a huge success and as space is limited we urge anyone wanting to display their work to contact us as soon as possible."

For further details call into the centre or ring Margery Collinge on 01254 701545 during opening hours.
