Street art

Paintings, prints, photography and more from the cream of British art students around the UK on show (and for sale) at the Atkinson Gallery in Street

The nationally recognised Atkinson Gallery in Street holds regular major contemporary exhibitions – Andy Warhol, Sir Antony Caro, Marc Quinn, Elisabeth Frink and Don McCullin have all exhibited here – but the gallery, part of the famous Millfield School, also supports young, aspiring artists from all over the UK. I’ve had a peep at their annual exhibition of artworks by the cream of MA and other Post-grad students from universities around the UK – almost all of them for sale. There are paintings, installations, photographic prints. Here’s a taster…
