South Northamptonshire Council (SNC) has been encouraging local artists to exhibit their art and craft work at this year’s Selected Open Exhibition at the Michael Heseltine Gallery from 9 – 23 May 2013.

The invitation has been extended to artists from North Oxfordshire this year, as the date of the event coincides with Oxfordshire Art Weeks and this is a good example of art across the borders.

The gallery, situated at Chenderit School in Middleton Cheney, has played host to the event for the past nine years and is always very popular.  This year’s exhibition is set to include paintings, drawings, sculptures, jewellery, textiles, prints, photographs, ceramics and embroidery from many artists some of whom are exhibiting for the first time.

Councillor Rosie Herring, portfolio holder for community engagement and wellbeing, said: “This exhibition provides one of the best ways for local artists to showcase their talents and I am delighted to see that it continues to go from strength-to-strength.

“This is a much needed facility for artists, whether they are professional or amateur, and an initiative that South Northamptonshire Council is pleased to encourage and support.”

The exhibition will be open during school days from 9am to 5pm and on Sunday 12 and the weekend of 18 - 19 May from 2pm to 5pm. Attendance is free and there is an opportunity to purchase items which can be collected at the end of the exhibition.

For further information please contact Sue Carverhill, Arts Development Officer on 01327 322334 or email Sue.Carverhill@SouthNorthants.gov.uk  alternatively you can contact the Michael Hesteltine Gallery on 01295 711567.
