A "WORLD class gallery" based in the heart of Southampton is offering previews especially for teachers.

The event at the John Hansard Gallery on Above Bar Street is a bid to show teachers how curators at the city's newest gallery can support schools with their learning.

The event will focus on the work of German painter Gerhard Richter, whose solo exhibition is currently on show at the £30m arts complex.

As reported it saw the official opening last week - when the head of Arts Council England pledged to plough more money into the city's arts scene.

The event is free but spaces are limited. It takes place on May 22 at 4-6pm at the gallery on Above Bar Street.
