    Italian artist Monica Vaccari is uniquely dedicated to the human face, exploring it in ceramics and photography in a way that straddles the worlds between representational accuracy and more abstract and conceptual iconography.

    Monica's photographs will be on view at Centrepoint through the end of April.  Join us at the vernissage on Friday, 5th April from 18:00 to 20:30.  Take the opportunity of the Artwall's free and open apero to bring friends along and those newcomers curious about Centrepoint.

    For more information please visit Monica's website here and/or Horizon magazine.
