February sees the opening of the final ever exhibition at the Salisbury Oxfam Art Gallery; a celebration of the future of art in Salisbury by young artists from The Unit. The Unit is an independent, non-political social enterprise broadly aiming to use creative approaches to empower and nurture a sense of agency in young people.
This exhibition, by promising young talent, is an eclectic range of emerging art ranging from giant origami sculpture to hand crafted brooches, photography and large scale paintings.
Contributing artists for âFuture: Unknown' became involved through the young people's organisation, The Unit, based in Endless Street in Salisbury. Those taking part are all aged between thirteen and nineteen and had to pass through a rigorous selection panel before making it to the exhibition as competition for places was fierce. Two local graphic artists and friends of The Unit, Nich Angel and Stew Taylor, will be exhibiting their work alongside the young artists and shall be hosting the preview evening on Thursday 9th February 5 7pm. All are welcome to join us at the gallery on this very special evening.
