In the Gallery and Online

ArtisAnn is proud to provide the first professional group show featuring this year’s class of emerging young talent. All the artists have graduated from the School of Art at Ulster University, winning several awards and prizes along the way.

Ken Bartley, co-owner of ArtisAnn, says:

‘The ArtisAnn Gallery believes in offering encouragement to young and emerging artists and is confident that these are stars of the future. The artwork produced by these newcomers is remarkable both for its technical ability and breadth of new ideas. This is a very varied show, with two common linkages: all are recent graduates and all are of the highest quality, with every indication that they will be ‘names’ of the future.’

Irene Sweeney examines healing “through slow and meditative engagement using paint, I hope to convey some of the affective magic and personal significance of these moments

Adam Skinner believes his work “conveys a narrative of our transition throughout life; how we are forever in a perpetual state of change”.

Lauren Reynolds is interested in “the theme of memory, taking ordinary moments from the daily life of working-class families to create a relatable sense of nostalgia. Recent works have been focused on an archive of old family photographs”.

The exhibition runs at the ArtisAnn Gallery at 70 Bloomfield Avenue, Belfast from Wednesday 7th September to Saturday 1st October.

All Welcome, Admission is free and No Booking Necessary.

All artworks are available to buy.

You can also buy art from this exhibition through the Own Art scheme which gives you an interest-free loan over 10 months (and you still get to take the art home immediately the exhibition ends).
