At the Edge explores British art from the second half of the 20th Century, drawing on sculpture, painting and print works from four public art galleries: Bolton, Oldham, Rochdale and Preston.

Works by other artists in this exhibition include John Bratby, Elizabeth Frink, Andy Goldsworthy, Patrick Heron, Carel Weight, Lyn Chadwick, Howard Hodgkin, Leon Kossoff, Tristram Hillier, John Bellany, Ken Kiff, Cornelia Parker, Laura Ford and many others.

At the Edge: British Art 1950 to 2000 runs until 22 January 2011.

There are a number of other exhibitions currently on at the centre. The Wildlife Photographer of the Year focuses on the most creative visions of the natural world, and the exhibition was selected from a record 43,135 submissions from 94 countries.

The second season of The Box is still running, and there's a ceramics exhibition, Japanese Pottery: The Rising Generation from Traditional Japanese Kilns. The centre is the only UK venue to host this touring exhibition from the Japan Foundation.

Plus next Saturday, 27 November,  the artists in residence at the Aberystwyth Arts Centre will hold an Open Studios event, where members of the public can meet and talk to the artists about their work. The current artists are Heather Phillipson, who works mainly with the moving image; Riikka Makikoskela, a sculptor from Finland, and Soozy Roberts, who has been developing short video works during her time in Aberystwyth.
