Last chance to see stunning exhibition by local arts charity at Peak Village

There are just a few days left to support disabled artists at an exhibition hosted by Rowsley-based contemporary art charity Level Centre at Peak Village.

The exhibition, which Peak Village is sponsoring to celebrate Level being its Charity of the Year for 2023, is currently open until Sunday 18th June. Guests are encouraged to spend the day at Peak Village to uncover the local and independent brands on offer.

Level celebrates ‘the art that difference makes’, producing and promoting high quality contemporary work that is powerful and relevant. All of the work on display at the centre has been created by disabled artists, or by artists who consider access to be at the heart of their practice.

The exhibition includes five diverse visual art exhibitions by Level artists, including Making Faces, After I Died, Sick Gaze and Level In Layers.

Peak Village centre manager Katayune Jacquin: “We’re so pleased that Level Centre are our charity of choice this year, and hope to grow awareness of the valuable work they do.  There are so many inspiring things happening at Level, and we have exciting plans to amplify these at Peak Village across 2023, starting with the exhibition of works by Level artists currently taking place.”

Kerry Andrews, Executive Director at the Level Centre: “We’re thrilled to be the Peak Village charity of the year for 2023, and it couldn’t have come at a better time for us.

“As well as raising money for Level, Peak Village will be home to some of our digital, visual and performing art projects and we’re really excited to be sharing what we do with their customers. We can’t thank our lovely neighbours at Peak Village enough; their support will help us continue to deliver creative programmes that celebrate the Art that Difference Makes.”

Peak Village actively supports local makers, artists and producers, and regularly welcomes creative pop-up experiences and residencies to sit alongside the many independent brands and businesses that call it home. In the past year, Peak Village has added Coghlans Food and Wine Experience Centre, Wild Olive, Lambs Cakes and Bakes and food, drink and retail concept Chatsworth Kitchen, which have all proved popular with the local community and visitors alike.

Situated in the village of Rowsley on the edge of the Peak District National Park, Peak Village is home to nearly 20 retail and leisure businesses and employs between 80 and 100 people. Significant investment over the past two years has enabled the site to continue growing following its purchase in 2021 by the Devonshire Group, based at nearby Chatsworth.
