Summer Solo Shows

Over the last week and a bit we’ve had the chance to view three different solo exhibitions from three local artists: Bubba 2000, Zoe Genders and Kieran Flynn. Each of these artists have contributed to the city’s street art scene over the years. So it was good to see their work in a different environment, hanging in a gallery space.
