Established in 1996 when Maurice Roberts, the manager of the Pavilion Gardens, having allowed local artists to sell their work outside the swimming pool, High Peak Artists established itself in the Pump Room (Now Buxton Visitor Centre) before moving to their current home at the Grade II listed Pavilion Gardens in 2009. The gallery is located inside the Retail Arcade, opposite Buxton Brewery Shop and Bar.

The group now has over 40 members covering a multitude of disciplines including various forms of painting; printmaking, photography, ceramics, sculpture, glass, wood, textiles & jewellery.

Everything you see at the exhibition is available to buy, so you can find something truly unique and even collect pieces by your favourite artist.

Many members offer tuition in their art form and current members include: Pauline Townsend – silk painting; Lucy Gell – illustrator and print maker; Simon Denvers – woodwork; Hannah Dodd – felt-making; Kate Pheasey – contemporary mosaics; Dave & Jan Butcher – photography; John Mellor – landscape painter and artist; Adele Kime – jewellery; Louise Jannetta – printmaking and Andrea Jospeph – artist and illiustrator.

A waiting list operates and membership is by selection for artists who wish to exhibit. Get in touch to find out more.

All members are local artists & makers and the group receives no external funding and is entirely self-sufficient.

High Peak Artists also hold regular seasonal exhibitions in the Pavilion Gardens and also have a special annual exhibition during July as part of the Buxton Festival Fringe.

Lunch with a full menu is available in the Pavilion Kitchen and The Pavilion Tea Room. The Retail Arcade is occupied by the Buxton Brewery Shop and Bar which features a small bar and seating area and also offers a range of local food and drink produce, homewares and gifts.
