A talented painter’s work will be going on show at a town’s gallery.

Keith Pask, 82, of Ullswater Road, Kettering, will have his paintings shown at several locations in the town, including the Alfred East Art Gallery, in Sheep Street, from March. It will also be shown at St Andrew’s Church, Lindsay Street, Kettering.

Mr Pask has been a keen painter since designing a poster aged nine during the Second World War and has won various awards for his work.

He is also a long-term member of Kettering District Arts Society and has been on the group’s committee.

He said: “It’s a good feeling to have my paintings shown at the gallery.

“I’ve got a lot of paintings, including one of Kettering train station I painted during the evening.

“It’s just a hobby that I’ve done more or less all my life.

“It is nice to look back at all the paintings I’ve done over time.

“In the older days there was barely any traffic on the streets.

“I used to stand in the middle of the roads in the town and paint various buildings.”
