A fine art graduate has recently opened her first art exhibition since graduating from AUB this summer

Meliz Sabanci is showcasing her work at the Unit 6 Studio & Gallery in Richmond, North Yorkshire as part of an event called 50 Under 50.

The exhibition runs until December 1 after opening earlier this month and Meliz says her first exhibition has been a big success.

She said: “It is going very well. I sold my first work on opening night and there have continued to be sales throughout the week with footfall increasing every week.

“The next step the gallery is taking is to create the online shop, just in case people are struggling to physically get through to the gallery”.
