Designer Wayne Hemingway has officially reopened a Derby art gallery after a four-month refurbishment.

The Joseph Wright Gallery, operated by Derby City Council, has been redecorated and some paintings have been cleaned and restored during the £150,000 project.

The gallery, which first opened in 1882, features paintings by 18th Century Derby artist Joseph Wright.

It will reopen to the public on Saturday.
