RIPE Peaches - Artists Announced!

We’re thrilled to announce we’ve selected a new group of talented graduates from Solent University and Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton as part of our RIPE programme.

Ripe Peaches is an upcoming two-part exhibition which will see 12 emerging artists to showcase a recent body of work as they look to develop their artistic careers. Launching in August 2021, the programme will provide an opportunity for the artists to meet, support each other through exhibition install and engage in critical debate; forming networks and friendships that will help them sustain a fruitful visual arts practice here in Southampton.

We can now reveal a list of the exhibiting artists:

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be introducing you to each of the artists and their creative practice through exclusive profiles and a behind the scenes look at the upcoming exhibition.
