Artists from Canterbury College have transformed an empty shop in the Marlowe Arcade into an exciting new art gallery.

The Curious Curator exhibition space, formerly The Discovery Store, will feature paintings, sculptures and installations by BTEC Subsidiary Diploma in Art and Design students.

The special four-day show was open to the public from 10am to 4pm on Saturday, 12 May, to Tuesday, 15 May, as part of the Sounds New Creative Music Festival.

Twelve students helped convert the empty store into a contemporary gallery featuring their work, which is a visual response to the music and themes of the Sounds New festival.

The festival also featured performances by Canterbury College Music and Dance students and others.
