The exhibition, which features photography, graphic work and paintings, opens on 8 January 2011, and will keep its doors open to the public until 22 January. All art work was created around the theme of urban landscapes.

Mike Butler, Arts Manager at Canterbury Christ Church University, said: "Artists of Tomorrow is a chance for local secondary school pupils to exhibit and showcase their work in a public art gallery.

This year’s participating schools are:

  • Astor College for the Arts - Dover
