Young artists showcase work in city

Young artists showcase work in city

A group of budding young north-east artists showcased their work yesterday in Aberdeen.

Pupils from Mile End Primary School officially opened their summer art exhibition at the city’s creative hub Seventeen, on Belmont Street.

New leader of Aberdeen City Council, Jenny Laing, was there to launch the event and said she was incredibly impressed by the pieces.

The theme of this year’s show was Games, to link in with the up-coming Commonwealth Games.

“The exhibition offers a wonderful eclectic mix and I would recommend anyone coming in to the city centre to pop along to Seventeen so they can see for themselves the children’s fabulous artwork,” she said.

Belvidere Gallery, located in the Rosemount area, has sponsored the exhibition for six years in a bid to inspire young people into the visual arts.

Alan Watts, managing director and founder, said: “It is a privilege to promote the work of young Aberdeen talent.”

The exhibition runs until next Thursday then will go on display at the Belvidere Gallery, 221 Rosemount Place, from June 2 until June 23.
