    "Landscape" is the title artist Stephan Hauswirth chose for his exhibition on Centrepoint's Artwall featuring around 50 small, almost monochrome paintings, half depicting concrete buildings and the other half mountains and hills.

    Stephan Hauswirth grew up in Basel and his artwork has been exhibited regularly in galleries and museums in Switzerland, Germany and France.  

    Join us on Friday, 19th May, from 18:00 to 20:00 for the Artwall Vernissage.  The vernissage is free and no reservation is necessary.  It is open to members and non-members so it can be a good opportunity to bring a new friend to Centrepoint, meet the artist, and learn a bit more about the art which will be displayed at Centrepoint through 24th August 2017.
