 Friday 2nd March – Friday 16th March 2018

FRESH exhibition is an exciting, new initiative that works to provide emerging artists the opportunity to showcase a diverse cross section of interesting and cutting edge works alongside other graduates from colleges and universities across the UK. The exhibition in March will include a private view and will be on display to the public at The Courthouse in Thirsk.

We are also offering one of the exhibiting artists a chance to win a solo exhibition later in 2018.
