WESTON College students will present their work to the public until the end of the month at an exciting exhibition.

Final year members of the foundation degree applied art and design course will showcase a collection of diverse and inspiring pieces.

The work on display is themed to convey transition and shares a common goal, while echoing each student’s individual art practice.

The exhibition includes a range of exciting and original pieces from object making, jewellery, paintings and print making.

The theme of transition is addressed by Geraldine Boley through the mysticism of nature, while the horse, as both graceful and yet powerful, is depicted in Strides by Michelle Fox.

Aleanna Mason represents memories recollected through childhood antics with rock pools in the form of jewellery and Frankie Boase explores the changing natural environment through ceramic vessels placed in site specific locations along a river valley.

Linked to human manifestations of transition, Lindy Paul explores her own identity through self portraits in oils and Jamie Davison literally covers her models in paint to produce an emotional response to male and female relationships.

Both Kimberley Wilcox and Anne-Marie Tsagurnis are investigating family lineage through photographic ancestral collections in print and paint.

Masks are the subject matter for Charlotte Pain’s print work, which illustrates the elements of concealment and transformation.

Also in the figurative oeuvre is Josef Hoccom’s expressive automatic drawings and paintings exploring the relationship between humanity and surreal, almost dreamlike, contexts, and lastly, Bo Silvestre’s work illustrates her transient early life influenced by Victorian and religious iconography.

The exhibition will be on show at the Bath Spa Gallery at Weston’s University Campus until January 28.
