The curator of a St Albans gallery is trying to encourage people to come and enjoy local art.
Debbie Knight, 48, from Harpenden, keeps a studio and regularly displays her own work at the Gallery 32 studio on Hatfield Road.
The mother-of-two said: “We have 20 different artists there now, who cover the gallery at the weekend.”
The gallery, which has been open since November, is part of the Vintage Emporium.
Mrs Knight said of her own painting: “I started painting again after rekindling my love for it.

“The gallery was given to me as an opportunity by the Emporium, and I quite liked the idea of having a gallery.”
Since recommencing her art, a subject she studied at university, Mrs Knight has managed to have her work displayed around the district, and is trying to work her way up to a bigger audience.
