Isabel Blincow, organiser and one of the exhibiting artists, said: “It was a crying shame for last year’s work not to be seen, and it’s great to be back.

The line-up of artists for the 25th annual exhibition is: Brian Smith, Judy Day, Helen Martel, Gerry Kersey, Mark Turner, Lyn Littlewood, Mark Beresford, Isabel Blincow, David Beatson, and sculptor Jason Heppenstall, whose magnificent 6ft sculpture of a salmon has been much enjoyed recently by travellers at Sheffield railway station.

Proceeds from the exhibition will go towards supporting the work of Sheffield Samaritans.
