Such is the relaxed informal nature of the event many exhibitors spend lots of time and money not only on the art but also hosting.

One of those is Miladys Parejo, who is bringing in a top Mexican chef to take over her kitchen for the month.

The AOH host of five years said: “It’s a great event and a fantastic opportunity for us artists to reach the community.

“Visitors get to speak to the artist and take the time to find out more about the works. That’s great.

“It’s an opportunity to view great pieces of art in a comfortable environment.”

Ms Parejo, who is originally from Venezuela, moved to the city 20 years ago to study.
