Young Talent 2022!

After a two year hiatus Young Talent is back! It is a pleasure to be able to welcome our audiences back to what has always been a highlight in our exhibition calendar. Although we’ve had opportunities for the young artists to exhibit in exhibitions over the last two years (and many of them have!), we haven’t been able to have our ever popular Young Talent exhibition, due to the pandemic.

Project Ability runs two different studio programmes for young artists. Create is for artists under the age of 21 and Art Matters is open to artists aged from 21-28. We also run outreach programmes and this year we have work from three local schools in the exhibition.

The sheer volume of artists in this show and the level of talent and imagination, combined with so many different mediums and styles, makes for an exciting atmosphere and a really fun gallery experience.
