About

As Corby’s only art gallery the Rooftop Arts Centre’s Annual Summer Show (7th – 28th of July 2017) is the best opportunity for local artists to show the town what they can do. Artists have been invited to fill the walls of the gallery and the exhibition will showcase the skills and creativity of local people.

The exhibition builds on the success of the popular Art4All exhibition and aims to help local artists have a regular platform to reach a wider audience, with a chance to sell their work and meet other creatives within the area. Artists are given a wall space of approximately 4ft x 8ft each and the gallery can hold 70 artists at this size which gives tremendous freedom in comparison to other open group exhibitions. Work submitted to the exhibition will include painting, drawing, photography and sculpture and will be up for winning two possible prizes.

First prize is a solo show in the medium gallery space which will be judged and revealed on the opening night. The second is a public choice award with voting throughout the exhibition for a free full wall display in the gallery.

The Rooftop Arts Centre is Corby’s only art gallery and on site there are 14 artists’ studios, a photo studio and space for workshops and classes. To coincide with the Annual Summer Show, they are holding the first Rooftop Festival which will feature live music, poetry, interactive art, a silent auction and refreshments. The festival coincides with the opening of the Annual Summer Show on the 9th of July from 4pm until 9pm.

Speaking about the exhibition Dinah Kazakoff, Director of the Rooftop Arts Centre said: “The Annual Summer show will become a permanent fixture in the gallery programme and we really hope it brings together local artists to celebrate all the creativity of Corby and surrounding areas.”
