Degree Show 2017 to showcase unique art and designWednesday 17 May 2017
Unique works crafted by final year students from the Department of Fine and Applied Art will go on display in a special exhibition.
The 2017 Degree Show launches on Friday 26th May at the Creative Campus with a private viewing and award presentation, sponsored by several prestigious art organisations.
The work is the culmination of three years study and will showcase a range of creative work created by Design and, Fine and Applied Arts students. Mediums include painting, sculpture, installation, ceramics, silversmithing, jewellery and textiles.
At Hope, Fine Art is about change, challenge, communication and application. It is about exploring individual creativity through visual possibilities in an increasingly context-aware, media-saturated and complex world. Fine Art provides the structure for the pursuit of individual creative experiences and endeavour, intellectual study and the fulfilment of creative potential. A full programme of two-and three-dimensional study, incorporating a variety of fine art media, is underpinned throughout by critical studies in contemporary and historical art.
Design deals with printed and constructed textiles, studio and industrial ceramics, interior and street furniture, objects for the interior, product design, silversmithing, jewellery and new digital technologies. The programme enables students to develop a visual and discerning understanding of the importance of design within a wide variety of specialist material areas relevant to their individual learning, personal development and future employment.
The exhibition will be open to the public from Saturday 27th May - Tuesday 6th June, 9 – 5pm Monday to Friday and 10 – 4pm on weekends.
