At NN Contemporary Art this winter, New Life celebrates the graduate artists of 2014. The exhibition presents selected artwork by recent graduates from a 50mile radius of Northampton.
Artistic Director, Catherine Hemelryk, has been scouting for New Life at degree shows from Oxford to Cambridge, Leicester to Luton, Coventry and Northampton. The exhibition brings together selected works by Fine Art graduates using media ranging from photography to painting and installation.
The Opening Night on Wednesday 17 December 2014 marks the gallery's 2nd birthday at Number Nine Guildhall Road. Everyone is invited to celebrate the upcoming generations of artists in New Life and two full and busy years at NN from 6pm.
Events accompanying New Life include Crit Group, Write Club and a Film Night featuring student classic Starter for 10 and Educating Rita.
