Guy Holloway, Head of Corporate & Cultural Services at Kettering Borough Council, said: “The screenings of these major exhibitions from around the world offer the next best thing to being there. The films are not strict walk-throughs of a show, but dive deeper, uncovering the life stories of some of the world’s most intriguing artists, and it’s fantastic to see them shown at Kettering’s Alfred East Art Gallery”.

Cllr Lloyd Bunday, Kettering Borough Council’s Deputy Leader and Portfolio Holder for Community & Leisure, said: “The Alfred East Art Gallery continues to find new ways to bring an interesting cultural offering to the town. Exhibition on Screen allows local art lovers to enjoy, marvel and delight at the works of some of history's greatest ever painters and their worldwide exhibitions.”
