A GROUP of 15 inspired youngsters from across Portsmouth had the opportunity to display their artwork at the Young Artists of Southsea Exhibition.
Held in the comic and boutique bookshop Room 237 in Elm Grove, Southsea, the exhibition allowed young artists o have their works seen and admired by the people of Portsmouth.
‘It’s a really good opportunity for me, and the other artists, to exhibit our work for the first time,’ said Arran Shurvinton, 21, from Widley Drive, Cosham.
Megan Grady, 19, of Somerset Road, Southsea, was motivated to organise the exhibition after she struggled to find work in the art industry.
She said it ‘provided an outlet for young artists to showcase their work as they too find it hard to gain recognition’.
The exhibition featured a selection of traditional artistic media such as inks, watercolours and photography.
Today is the exhibition’s last day.
The gallery is open 10am-6pm.
