Friday 4th – Sunday 6th August 2023

Ripe Pears #01 will be the first in a two-part exhibition of outstanding work by a group of 2023 graduates from Solent University and Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton.


The project will provide an opportunity for a group of emerging artists to exhibit a recent body of work in a new space, the Alfred Arcade. Throughout a summer of activity in Old Northam Road, the artists will meet, exhibit and engage in critical debate; forming networks and friendships to help them to sustain a fruitful visual arts practice.
