Exhibitions

September

Catching The Light

4th – 28th September

Foyer, Small, Medium Galleries

Preview Evening
Friday 6th September
6 pm – 8 pm

Amanda Drage presents a new collection of animal and bird paintings exploring colour, pattern, and mark making along with selected previous works.

In this new collection of paintings Amanda has introduced elements of patterning, experimented with mark making, and worked with gold, silver and copper painted accents. Each painting is circular, which has given her the opportunity to create some striking and interesting compositions.

Amanda’s animal paintings have a strong emphasis on portraiture and go beyond a straightforward depiction of an animal. Her aim is to capture something of a story within the expression of an animal – a fleeting look, a question, or something we can identify with in some way.

Changing Corby

Over the past two years, Deep Roots Tall Trees has been exploring the cultural heritage of four migrant communities who have adopted Corby as their home; Scottish, Polish, Latvian and Serbian.

We have learned songs and dances, shared food and stories and would like to invite you to view the exhibition and see, hear, and share some of the things we have discovered.

The exhibition includes a video of Deep Roots Tall Trees Choir and Deep Roots
Tall Trees Dancetheatre working with our cultural partners alongside interviews, photographs, national costumes, information, and artwork from the Changing Corby project.
