FORTY local artists will be displaying their work at an art fair in Stroud this weekend.

The Stroud Artists Cooperative will be staging an outdoor and indoor exhibition in the Lansdown Hall and in Bank Gardens on Saturday.

The group held their first event on the Sub Rooms' forecourt in June.

Eastcombe based artist Chris James, who is organising the event said: "The idea is to replicate similar outdoor shows that take place on a regular basis in Italy and France during the summer months."

"We're hoping to grow this arts event in the park, especially next year.

"If you are an artist and would like to know more about our intended cooperative projects please get in touch."
