The exhibition, organised by the Stroke Association, is at the Leabrooks Gallery in Somercotes until Friday, July 31.

Featuring the work of stroke survivors across the East Midlands, the exhibition includes watercolours and pencil drawings which have been created individually and by people who attend the Stroke Association voluntary art groups, Art 4 Stroke Folk.

Julie Bowler from the Stroke Association, said: “Art therapy can help stroke survivors build on their confidence and express themselves in new ways.
