One of the most exciting events in the art world in Wales, the second Young Welsh Artists – Artistiaid Ifainc Cymru exhibition will showcase the work of artists under 30 working in Wales.
The exhibition will introduce nine early-career artists from across Wales, whose disciplines range from ceramics and photography to painting and installations.
Two guest curators, Mari Elin Jones and Lloyd Roderick, have been invited back to stage the exhibition for the second year:
