Nina Lazarski and Charlie MacKay: Winchester Loves Volunteering
From 11 February to 28 February. Private View: Friday 14 February.
As part of National Student Volunteering Week, the gallery is featuring a collaborative photography project between members of staff at the University and local photographer Adrian Brophy. The exhibition will include 18 portraits of student and staff volunteers from the University focusing on the people behind the activities, not only those they support. Adrian is currently working on a project titled Winchester Volunteers which aims to celebrate Winchester's unpaid, unsung miracle workers and show the contributions, big and small, made every day by the citys many volunteer organisations and charities. He explains that he is "keen to give a glimpse into the efforts made by some of the many people that give up their own time to make incredible things happen".

Wayne Jefferson: Near Horizons
From 7 November to 11 December 2012; Private View: Friday 9 November, 18.30 - 20.00
An exhibition of bold, vibrant and expressive oil paintings inspired by the local landscape. Wayne Jefferson is widely known for his highly individual paintings that reflect the form, countours and light of the countryside in the South of England. Using oil as his medium he achieves dramatic effects with the use of bold brush strokes. His work provides a very particular view, capturing the essence and atmosphere of the landscape.
I am drawn by the ever changing character of the sky and the dramatic luminous colour and form that exists in this part of the south, said Wayne whose particular artistic influences include Cezanne and Matisse.
The paintings aim to reflect an individual reaction to this unique landscape on both a physical and an emotional level. They move away from traditional painterly translations of the landscape and into a personal response that is an interpretation of place which seeks to express the sensation and personality of the locale.
Wayne was born in Basingstoke and studied at Winchester College of Art and the University of Southampton. Formerly Head of Art at Kingston University, he now resides in the village of North Waltham in Hampshire which has been central to his work in creating this exhibition. His work is regularly exhibited in solo shows at various galleries throughout the South of England.
