Heralding the arrival of spring, Byard Art’s Breath of Fresh Air show brings an invigorating display of art to the walls of its King’s Parade gallery until 19 March. 

Showcasing a selection of contemporary artists, the exhibition features work in a variety of different media, including painting, sculpture, craftwork, glass and jewellery.

Among the artists showing their pieces are Pete Hawkins, whose paintings are alive with movement and imagination, whether his subject is ballerinas or rodeos. Paul Crook, meanwhile, another painter, explores geometrical shapes and structures in urban environments in his vibrant pieces.

There’s also beautiful, intricate pendants and earrings from jeweller Andrew O’Dell, dreamlike flora and fauna from Simone Webb and sculptures from Mark Upton.
