Solent Showcase was the first major addition to Southampton’s emerging culture and arts district. The gallery strives to encourage engagement, discussion and participation across the entire local community.

The creation of Solent Showcase coincided with the expansion of the art courses at Solent, generating a new era of visual creativity at the University. The gallery supports up-and-coming artists to provide examples of the best contemporary art and embraces the idea of cross-disciplinary collaboration to highlight the creative talents of the University.

Solent Showcase is located in the University's Sir James Matthews building on Guildhall Square, near the Civic Centre and the City Art Gallery.
