The exhibition will run from Tuesday the 12th of May to Sunday 31st May, with opening night on Thursday 14 May – see below for details.
It’s hard to be a young adult no matter what your chosen path, but life as an artist can involve of stress and hard work, which is why REDSEA Gallery is hosting Young Blood to celebrate their efforts and achievements.

“I see these seven student artists as all having fantastic potential and, in a way, they also represent the next forefront of art within this city,” says Lee Steer, the gallery’s Managing Director. “Perhaps, one of these student artists will become the next Picasso? Yes, it is an exciting possibility of discovery- but for now Iâ€™m just happy to give back something to the city that has embraced REDSEA Gallery, and continually fuels my passion for art.â€
