THE GRADUATE Art Show is to return to a gallery on the High Street early next year bringing new talent into the spotlight. 

The show is an independent national programme which invites new BA and MA graduates to enter work for consideration. The graduates selected have their work shown in London during Frieze week in October.

After mounting the Salisbury version of the London exhibition in February this year, Vanner Gallery director David Christie was invited to join the selection panel for the London exhibitions. 

David said: “We are thrilled to bring the Graduate Art Show back to Salisbury. It’s a really exciting group of artists and the body of work on show is wonderfully diverse and dynamic.

"It can be a great time to buy into an artist’s work when they are newly graduated as the pricing is often quite accessible. We hope visitors will enjoy the exhibition just as much as they did last year.”

Across January and February, over 20 brand new graduates will have their work on show in Salisbury. Disciplines on show include paintings, sculpture, ceramics and photography.

Many of the most prestigious art schools in the country have alumni in the exhibition, including UAL Central Saint Martins, Goldsmiths, Glasgow School of Art and the Royal College of Art.

Victoria Charleton who is one of the founders of the national Graduate Art Show programme said: “The programme is a wonderful way for new graduates to show professionally for the first time and to sell work. I’m delighted the exhibition is returning to Salisbury with a fresh group of such outstandingly talented artists.”

The exhibition will be at the Vanner Gallery on the High Street and opens on Friday, January 12 until Friday, February 16 2024.
