Work goes on display for the public


Creative students from the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) are set to showcase their talents at a free exhibition displaying the work of artists studying at Masters level.

The 2014 MA Fine Art Degree Show will for the first time combine the work of final year students with those at the half way point in the two year course and includes paintings, sculptures, printmaking, moving image, photography and inventive forms of installation.

Associate lecturer Claire Hope commented: “It’s the first time we have showcased the work of final year and first year MA students together to demonstrate continual artistic development and we would encourage people to come along to this free exhibition to see these exciting projects for themselves.

“The work on show represents the continual dynamic shifts and debates within the diversity of contemporary practice."

“The work on show represents the continual dynamic shifts and debates within the diversity of contemporary practice. There is some fascinating work on show combined with some very innovative forms of public engagement, site related historical archiving and inventive documentation of social projects.”

Both sets of student work will go on display on Friday 5 September. The final year exhibition is open until Wednesday 17 September and the first year exhibition will continue until Wednesday 24 September each day from 10.00am – 5.00pm. The show is also open on Saturday 6 and Saturday 13 September 10.00am – 4.00pm.

The exhibition will take place at UCLan’s Hanover Building. For more information contact Claire Hope on chope@uclan.ac.uk or Victoria Lucas on vlucas@uclan.ac.uk
