Kingston University's Stanley Picker Gallery is celebrating its 15th birthday refurbishment with an exhibition featuring the work of a Turner prize Prize nominee.
The exhiition called The Occupants is a collection of works which pays tribute to cosmetic giant and art patron Stanley Picker by showcasing parts of his former home on Kingston Hill.
Kingston University Director David Falkner hopes the Stanley Picker exhibition will encourage more visitors to the gallery: "The gallery is a key part of the Stanley Picker Trust's legacy and we are keen to celebrate his patronage of arts education by making even more of this invaluable asset at Kingston University."
Exhibits currently on show include a film by Turner Prize nominee Elizabeth Price, also a Stanley Picker Fellow in 2005, an installation of brightly-coloured zigzag-shaped helium balloons by Andy Holden and photographs of the Picker House by Bridget Smith.
