The small but varied show called ‘A Woman’s View’ includes work from five of the art world’s most recognisable women whose pieces would normally be found hanging on the walls of renowned galleries across the globe.

From the abstract modernist work of Barbara Hepworth and Bridget Riley to the figurative pieces of Elisabeth Frink and Tracey Emin, included in the exhibition are also pieces by Paula Rego and Celia Pual whose art is currently on show at the Tate Britain in London.

Sophie Towne, The Corn Hall arts and heritage outreach manager said: “It’s a real privilege and pleasure to be able to bring such world-renowned female artists to Diss for everyone to enjoy completely free.”

The Corn Hall is open from Monday to Saturday 10am - 4pm, the exhibition runs until June 30.
