A celebration is being held to mark the second anniversary of The Rooftop art gallery in Corby.

The idea to open a gallery was first put forward by its co-ordinator Paula Boulton at a meeting on March 14, 2012.

Since then nine studios have been created at the complex in the former library above Queens Square, 16 exhibitions have been held, featuring the work of 250 exhibitors and it has welcomed hundreds of visitors.

Paula said: “This is a time to reflect on our achievements to date and to take stock. Year three of our present plan is all about getting people involved in creativity and we need Corby residents to join in. A workshop programme with be starting soon, with Sunday afternoon art classes beginning on March 30.”

Two exhibitions now running at The Rooftop are Paul Sibbering’s exploration of the transformation of the former library to the art gallery and Andrej Berezin’s paintings inspired by Paul’s Rust work.

The gallery’s birthday celebration is on Saturday, March 15, starting at 6pm.
