CITY and countryside scenes and paintings of local sporting heroes all came to life on canvas at a picture-perfect exhibition of work by a Sheffield art group.

Heeley Art Club held the display at Sheffield’s Winter Garden, which drew the attention of passers-by.

And members of the art group, Sheffield’s longest-running, were on hand to speak to people about their work.

A total of 46 pieces, two from each artist, went on display, and visitors were able to purchase any picture that caught their eye.

Prices ranged from £50 to £400, and cards and prints were also for sale.

The title for the exhibition was Sheffield In The Frame and the pieces on show had to have a city theme, from paintings of Olympic champion heptathlete Jess Ennis to rocky edges in the Peak District.

The week-long exhibition was being held by Heeley Art Club for the eighth year in a row.

Entry to the display was free - and included the chance to watch painters at work in the Winter Garden as visitors browsed their wares.
