Resident Artists Exhibition

6th – 30th November

All galleries

Preview Evening
Wednesday 6th November from 6pm – 8pm

Every year we hold our annual exhibition of artwork by our resident studio artists who open their studios and fill the galleries with art. The show will include painting, installation, drawing, textile, ceramics and more.

As the only artist studios in Corby this is a unique opportunity to see local artists present their work and see the skills and talent on our doorsteps. The resident artists are at the heart of the Rooftop Arts Centre and every year their annual show is always one of the highlights of our exhibition program.
