AN EVENT that highlights the work of Petersfield artists has been expanded as the town’s pool of talent continues to grow.

The Festival Hall will be turned into a huge gallery as the annual Petersfield Arts & Crafts Society exhibition opens next Thursday.

The five-day event will include work by Petersfield School students in the Rose Room and demonstrations by PACS members.

Visitors can buy framed artwork to take away on the day for as little as £35 from the “accessible art” feature.

The exhibition will also feature work from a multitude of new members with paintings, pottery, ceramics and textiles being among the many forms on show from 10am to 4pm each day.
