Blackpool’s art scene welcomes Hungarian painter who travelled from Southampton to launch gallery at Tea Amantes

A well-known Hungarian artist got a warm Blackpool welcome when she opened her exhibition at Tea Amantes.

Szidónia Gergely made the trip from Southampton to launch her display of paintings on 2 May 2022.

She was welcomed by many Fylde coast artists, and local supporters of the creative arts – including deputy mayor, Paula Burdess.

The self-taught artist specialises in portraits and a reflective classical style of art, but also works as a freelance tattoo artist in south east England.

Szidónia’s work is on display at the tearoom on Albert Road until 6 June 2022.
