Final Year Fine Art Degree Show
Twenty five final year Fine and Applied Art students from Canterbury Christ Church University will exhibit their work at a remarkable exhibition at the Sidney Cooper Gallery opening on Saturday 26 May until Saturday 9 June 2012.
One installation in particular touchingly investigates family and memory, and will be exhibited for the first time during Dementia Awareness Week 2012.
Utilising various media, including ceramics, glass, film, paintings, prints and sculpture, the exhibition runs throughout the Sidney Cooper Gallery and its studios. Some students are using whole room installations for their work.
A large-scale installation using electrical wire formations by Naomi Eaton-Baudains, based on her research and drawings at Thanet Earth, occupies a whole room off the main gallery, whilst an entire wall of the main gallery is amassed with over 2,000 tiny porcelain forms, reminiscent of shells and undersea creatures, by Susan Mount.
The fragility and translucency of glass features in the work of Nick Berry and Nick Hall’s dynamic prints are inspired by the isolation of people in the urban environment. Jack Vaughan, who intends to pursue a career in teaching, exhibits work inspired by the poignancy of children’s drawings.
The exhibition is open from 26 May 2012 – 9 June 2012 at the Sidney Cooper Gallery, St Peter’s Street, Canterbury CT1 2BQ. The gallery is open Tuesday to Friday from10.30am – 5pm, Saturday 11.30am to 5pm and is closed Sundays and Mondays. Admission is free and disabled access is available.
This event is open to the public.
