Fine & Applied Arts Technical Manager Jason Jones praised this year’s students for their work and the opportunities they have earned. He said: “Design student Grace Beck has done exceedingly well, making some sales on the launch night and some potential commissions.
“Meanwhile, Harry Garner now follows in the footsteps of many former students as his work enters into a very large and prominent art collection at Liverpool Women’s hospital. A lot of previous students and staff have works in this collection.
“Lastly, The FACT & Hope Production Residency is a major career starter for any artist and is very high profile.”
Based at the Creative Campus, the Degree Show is open to the public daily between 10am – 4pm, until Tuesday 18th June.
