An exhibition showcasing the work of nine young local artists will be launched on Wednesday.

The YO Arts – Young Artists project is run by the City of Greater Bendigo and is designed to encourage and support emerging talent aged 15 and 25 years.

Featured artists have had the opportunity to hone skills and learn from professional artists.

The council’s inclusive communities coordinator David Williamson said it had been an exciting opportunity for young artists to show their skills and receive public recognition for the creativity.

“This is the fifth time the city has undertaken this initiative and I congratulate all of the participants for their commitment to the project, for following their creative vision and for producing such excellent art works,” he said.

The free launch takes place from 4.30pm to 5.30pm Wednesday at 45 Mundy Street.
