WITH the recent sad demise of the Ormeau Baths Gallery, artists in South Belfast will be pleased to hear of the return of an old haunt to fill the cultural void.

The Lisburn Road’s ArtTank Gallery has reopened following six months of renovation. A local artist is behind the new work welcoming visitors to the space this month.

Ormeau-based Brendan Jamison has teamed up with internationally acclaimed artist Peter Richards to contribute to the ‘Fresh’ exhibition. They have created a startling image of a mechanical digger using slow exposure to induce a spooky effect.

Other artists featured in the exhibition, which opens on November 10, include Ciaran Magill and Alvin Hobson.

ArtTank curator Carrie Neely said: “Fresh explores the relationships of human activity within urban and rural landscapes through the perspectives of the real, the abstract and the psychological.”

The exhibition will run until Friday November 25, and will be open between 7-9pm.
