YOUNG artists will get a taste of what it’s like to run their own gallery as they manage an exhibition of their work at Milford Haven town hall this month.
The exhibition, which runs daily for two weeks, features pieces by almost 80 local artists – all aged 18 or under.
Pieces were created by A Level, AS Level, GCSE and BTEC students from Milford Haven School, with contributions from sixth form students at Greenhill and Pembroke.
Mayor of Milford Haven Cllr Yvonne Southwell officially opened the exhibition on Tuesday evening, and congratulated organisers and students for all their hard work, and Tesco community champion Debbie Bates for her help in promoting the event.
Photography, oils, acrylics, prints, ceramics and 3D pieces are all showcased, demonstrating the unique directions individual artists have chosen.
And sixth form students will be on hand to talk visitors through their work as they take it in turns to manage the exhibition.
Milford Haven School art teacher Christopher Green said he hoped the chance to exhibit their work would give the students a sense of pride.
“It brings home the achievement of what they’ve done,” he said.
“So many hours are put into the work; it’s lovely to communicate that.”
The exhibition is open to the public until October 17.
