Students' summer show set to stun the art world
PUBLISHED: 12:30 13 June 2014
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.
