Shuttle Bus

Ursula O’Reilly Traynor‘s insight:

I love student shows! You never quite know what you will discover among the new talent emerging from one of our leading art colleges. I love the opportunity to chat to the young artists as I view their work, often being exhibited to the public for the first time. I’ll be going to lots of college shows this summer and hopefully getting some inspiration on how to revitalise my domestic space (okay, tired looking flat in NW6!). Investing in young artists makes sense.
