College students open art exhibition at local gallery
7th April 2016
Students from Newcastle-under-Lyme College (NULC) will be opening an art exhibition with an exclusive VIP viewing on Friday 8 April at Airspace Gallery in Hanley, Broad Street.
The eight students, who are currently studying the Foundation degree (FdA) in Contemporary Art Practice at NULC in partnership with Staffordshire University, will be showcasing work they have produced in specialisms encompassing surface pattern, illustration, 3D design, photography and fine art.
The art exhibition, titled ‘Exposure’, aims to inspire others, illustrate emerging talent and unmask the students’ creativity as they prepare to graduate this summer and launch their careers as qualified contemporary art practitioners.
Shannon Steyn, Foundation Degree Curriculum Leader at NULC, said: “All of the students who are exhibiting at ‘Exposure’ at the Airspace Gallery in Hanley have worked really hard in taking this concept from an idea to actually opening the exhibition. They’ve created the branding, liaised with the gallery and produced VIP invitations for a private viewing. They’re all really excited to launch the exhibition and I am extremely proud of their efforts.”
‘Exposure’ will be open to members of the public from Saturday 9 April to Wednesday 13 April* between 11am and 5pm (closing at 3pm on 13 April), and visitors are encouraged to come along to experience this varied and contemporary exhibition.
