An exhibition showcasing the original hanging of the 1913 Alfred East collection at the Alfred East Art Gallery – which has already attracted more than 2,000 people – will be closing on Saturday, August 31.

The exhibition celebrates the legacy that Sir Alfred East gave to the town of Kettering, with the original hang of East paintings that he donated to the town on show in the same way as they were in 1913.

Speaking about the exhibition, Kettering Council head of community services Val Hitchman said: “It is fantastic that this display has attracted so much interest, Sir Alfred East was a really significant person in Kettering’s history and it is wonderful that one hundred years later people are still enjoying his legacy to the town.”

The Large Gallery and the Long Gallery will be closed from Sunday, September 1, when the gallery will launch The Landscape Within by Nic Thomas.
