Identities Art Exhibition

To all art lovers,

I would like to invite you to an exhibition I am currently curating at the ROOFTOP Arts Centre in Corby.

The show includes my own work, that of Jane Whitton and of our son, Joss. We will be showing alongside artists I have invited from Corby, London, Brighton and Norwich, so bringing together professional contemporary artists and local Northamptonshire artists for a one-off exhibition in this dynamic arts centre with around 350 sq. metres of dedicated gallery space.

The exhibition is open until 27th July, Wed – Sat, 11:00 – 4:00pm daily.
Entrance is free and an illustrated catalogue (£4.00) accompanies the show.

Hope you will come along,

Paul Sibbering
