There is a huge amount of creative talent in the Derwent Valley area.
We have 60 artists, studios, galleries, creative spaces and venues along the Derwent Valley. Each one is close to the River Derwent and stretches from Bamford in the north of the valley down to Long Eaton in the south.
Each artist, gallery or venue has their own dedicated page where you can read more about them, and find where they are located plus being able to have directions as to how to find them.
In some cases you will be able to drop in on an ad-hoc basis; in others it’s advisable to contact them first. You will see this information on their individual pages.
We are working hand in hand with The Derwent Valley Trust and will develop this relationship throughout the year. But if you are taking in any part of the splendid 55 mile walk through the Derwent Valley using the Heritage Way then please do think about taking in some of the art venues.
Our aim is to promote artists, photographers, illustrators, galleries, studios and all related establishments and individuals to help connect them to the wider public and to further strengthen the Derwent Valley area as a ‘centre of excellence’ for the arts.
