Exhibition Launch - Seeing Stars

Tuesday 26 April 2022
6:00pm - 8:00pm
Art Gallery, The Stanley and Audrey Burton
General public

See outer space through a different lens. Join us to celebrate the opening of the new ‘Seeing Stars’ exhibition.

We have had a long lasting fascination with outer space: from ancient civilisations who saw stories in the stars, to modern day technology bringing us closer than ever to the cosmos.

This exhibition shines a light on contemporary artists who use and challenge the newest technologies for space imaging in their art practice. The artists in this exhibition bring the human sense of wonder back into sharp focus – blurring the line between fact and fiction.

Discover new contemporary artists, and ask yourself: what do you see when looking at the stars?

The exhibition opening is free to attend and all are welcome. Booking is required.


  • Exhibition viewing and refreshments from 6pm
  • Welcome remarks at 6.15pm
  • Exhibition available for viewing until 8pm

Seeing Stars is on display in The Stanley and Audrey Burton Gallery from 27 April – 30 July 2022.

Open Tuesday to Saturday, 10am–5pm. It’s free to visit, and open to everyone.
