Art Students exhibit work at The Hive, Shrewsbury
Students studying the University of London Foundation Diploma in Art & Design at Shrewsbury College are exhibiting their ‘Shrines’ at the Hive Gallery Space, Belmont Shrewsbury.
For this exhibition Shrewsbury College students were asked to make a shrine dedicated to a historical Shropshire character. These included people such as Wilfred Owen, John ‘Mad Jack’ Mytton, Mary Webb and Ellis Peters.
Habib Malik-Mansell, Marketing & Administration Co-ordinator at The Hive said, "We are always happy to involve students from Shrewsbury College within our activities; and the gallery space provides the perfect opportunity for young artists to display their creative talents. The current exhibition is certainly worth a visit; particularly to show the level of work which students can achieve on the course."
The UAL Foundation Diploma in Art & Design is essentially a transitional experience in Art, Design and Communication preparing Students for either a place in higher education or employment, with many students progressing to University.
Olivia Gregory, Graduate UAL Foundation Diploma in Art & Design, ‘’I have enjoyed meeting new people, but mostly being able to explore all my ideas freely and independently whilst having good support from Tutor.’’ Olivia is now studying BA (Hons) Fine Art at Cardiff Metropolitan University.
The ‘Shrines’ exhibition is part of an on-going series of exhibitions under the title of Lovely Jubbly. This particular show will be on until 15th November and is free to the public.
