Paintings cover a gallery’s walls from floor to ceiling as it provides a feast for the eyes with its hidden treasures.

The Alfred East Art Gallery in Kettering is displaying 156 paintings from its collection at once, some of which have never been seen before.

Valerie Hitchman, head of community services at Kettering Council, said: “It’s absolutely amazing.

“If you look at the paintings in the main room and then the Gotch exhibition in the smaller gallery it’s an absolute feast of colour and different styles of painting. It’s astonishing.”

It is also a chance to see the newly restored Alfred East painting Sunlit Haven before it goes to the Yale Centre for British Art in Connecticut next spring.

Sue Edwards will give a talk on the show on Friday, March 9.
