Shepard Fairey, is a contemporary American street artist who manages to bring together elements of commercial and street, successfully bridging the gap between the two.

There is a sense of humour here when his manifesto is headed 'Manufacturing Quality Dissent since 1998', which is quite a literal summing up of what he does. The exhibition includes a screening of Avi Lewis's film This Changes Everything.

Decorus Creatura (Beautiful Creatures) EC Woodard, Ards Arts Centre, Newtownards. Until Monday October 31. Daily 10am-4.30pm

Emily's work is inspired by both the countryside and her love of animals.

A skilled and sensitive artist Emily has exhibited internationally and her work is held in numerous private collections.
