The detailed vintage fashion work, stunning paintings and giant structures wowed visitors to Weston College’s summer show.

Every year the art and graphics students pledge to make the next show even bigger and better and this one did not disappoint.

More than 4,000 paintings, sculptures, photographs, textiles, fashion and graphic art will be displayed at Weston College’s University Campus, in Loxton Road – celebrating its 27th year.

The creative exhibition has already attracted hordes of visitors, many of whom were set to buy original art.

The 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. “

The show, which is free to attend will run until tomorrow (Fri) from 10am to 4pm.
