“Its called used space because it is looking at the inside of cups and the way space is used.”

Denise said: “The exhibition runs every year, but this is the first time I have seen so many artists taking part.

“Hopefully the same artists will enter the exhibition next year and visitors will be able to see some progression with their work.”
