New series of exhibitions at Northampton Centre

Series commences in July with work by wood engraver of distinction

A new series of exciting exhibitions are to take place at the University's Institute of Lifelong Learning centre in Northampton.

Director of Studies at the Northampton Centre, Gerald Porter, said he was looking forward to the showing of so much interesting work by both contemporary and traditional artists. "The future programme is looking extremely full", he said.

Among those exhibiting at the Centre in Barrack Road is professional artist Geri Waddington, a wood engraver of distinction, whose work has been commissioned and regularly appears in print. On display will be a selection of her wood engravings relating to habitat and environment which represent something of her unique vision of the world.

A frequent exhibitor in the Oundle area, Geri Waddington trained at the Slade School of Art. She is currently working on a book of wood engravings of the village of Oundle.

Geri regularly takes part in the Open Studios Fortnight which is held across Northamptonshire every September. It is hoped to introduce some workshops into the forthcoming programme. Her work will be on show during the month of July to coincide with the annual summer school to be held at the Northampton Centre from July 7 to July 25.

The Centre is open Mondays to Thursdays, 9.0am - 9.0pm, and Fridays 9.0am - 4.0pm. The gallery is occasionally open on Saturdays. For further information contact the Northampton Centre, Queen's Building, Barrack Road. Northampton, telephone 01604 251801, fax 01604 620544.
