HUNDREDS of Weston students are putting the final touches to thousands of art and design pieces as they gear up for their annual summer show.

More than 4,000 paintings, 
sculptures, photographs, textiles, fashion and graphic art will be 
displayed at Weston College’s 
University Campus, in Loxton Road, this month.

The creative arts exhibition 
is now in its 27th year and is 
set to attract thousands of 
visitors - many of whom buy 
original art.

It features higher education and further education pieces and is regarded as a showcase for future artistic talent.

Weston College’s head of creative arts, Sarah Clark, said: “This is a rare chance for the public to come and see the excellent work that our students produce.

“Staff are available to provide advice and guidance of both full time and part time programmes, including a degree course.

“We are delighted at the faculty’s growth and expansion of the 
summer show. The standard of 
work is outstanding with diverse, highly creative imagery.”

The show, which is free to attend, runs from June 18-27 from 10am to 4pm on weekdays and 10am to 2pm on Saturday and is closed on Sunday.

The college – which was awarded higher education status last month - will also hold an open day on June 21, from 10am to 2pm, at the University and Knightstone sites for potential students interested in degree courses.

For more information about the summer show or the open day email or call 01934 411627.
