Kettering & District Art Society 112th Annual Exhibition

7 October - 11 November

Large Gallery

Preview: Saturday 7th October 1-3pm

With over 100 members, KDAS are back with their 112th Annual Exhibition.

Selected works will form part of this year's exhibition, featuring a diverse range of techniques, styles and mediums making this show appeal to a wide audience with something for everyone!

Room 23 by Simon Shadowshow and Barnaby Darling

18 November - 6 November

Large Gallery

The exhibition is a mixture of photographs, video art, constructions, and painted media. Whilst both artists have previously shown their work in solo exhibitions this is a unique opportunity to view their work side by side in a gallery setting. Influences range from Daido Moriyama, Charles Bukowski, Genesis P-Orridge, and Friday night epiphanies from whiskey bottle wisdom. This collection should be approached with an open mind and will appeal to the charlatan, scoundrel, and ne’er do well that lives in us all.

Room 23

Brian Dion

Beauty of Light by Brian Dion

18 November - 13 January

Long Gallery

A re-scheduling of the exhibition, which was meant to show during August.

In this exhibition Brian shows the importance of capturing the true essence of the day and to be as true to life as possible. He proves that you don’t need to travel far to see beauty in nature, as most of the images on show are taken within Northamptonshire.
