At NN Contemporary Art this winter, New Life celebrates the graduate artists of 2014. Artistic Director, Catherine Hemelryk, has been scouting for New Life at degree shows from a 50 mile radius of Northampton with work by artists graduating from Oxford, Cambridge, Leicester, Luton, Coventry, Birmingham and Northampton. The exhibition brings together the selected works by Fine Art graduates using media ranging from photography to painting and installation. The Opening Night on Wednesday 17 December 2014 marks the gallery’s 2nd birthday at Number Nine Guildhall Road. Everyone is invited to celebrate NN’s birthday and to toast the upcoming generations of artists in New Life.

Part of our Northampton Multiverse season.
