Two talented young artists have set up a pop-up exhibition for a week in an empty shop on the High Street in Shaftesbury.

Morganne Cannon-Langford, 19, who went to Gillingham School, and Phillip Olney, also 19, who went to Bishop Wordsworth’s School in Salisbury, are using the former florist shop Fork & Flowers at number 37 to showcase and sell their prints and sculptures.

The artists, who both recently left Arts University Bournemouth with Distinctions, and who are now working in collaboration along the Dorset and Wiltshire border, says profits from the sales will go towards the charity Young Enterprise, which is the charity championed by Shaftesbury mayor Piers Brown for his term of office.

‘It’s a lovely old building which we have found suits an exhibition perfectly,’ say Morganne and Phillip.

‘We’re a local young artist collaboration based along the border between Wiltshire and Dorset. We have been showing our work in cafes and local spaces across both counties, receiving incredible support from our local communities,’ they say.

The pair will be at the shop all week from 10am to 3pm, including on August Bank Holiday Monday, 27 August.

The public are invited to pop in and have a look – or visit olneycannonlangford.wordpress.com or @olney_cannon_langford on Instagram.
