Exhibitions:

The creative art scene in Leeds is thriving and there is no better way to immerse yourself in the creations of many up-and-coming local artists than at Old Red.

Alongside other cultural hubs in the city, Old Red will play host to some of the contemporary artworks produced for the exhibition Girl Space a one-day festival celebrating female creatives of all kinds.

On the 31st October, we host the opening night of the Tanith Mab exhibition, a Fine Art student at Leeds Art College, Mabs work is laden with existential narratives. Expect exemplary pieces bound with philosophical symbolism and dark humour.

Hailing from Swansea Bruce Risdon painting gives tradition figure painting a contemporary twist. Risdon’s is the driving force behind local classic rock night- The Strip which heavily fulled the alternative rock n roll culture elements evident in his work. A Slice of the Cake opens on the 28th of November.

Our very own Seren Oakley joins us just before Chrismas with her Plastic Hearts Exhibition, which promises live music as well as several new pieces from Seren herself.
