Clarissa Corfe joins latest Hanover Project
Fine art students from the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) have enlisted the expertise of Harris Museum contemporary art curator Clarissa Corfe for their latest Hanover Project exhibition.
The nine exhibitors; representing all three years of the undergraduate fine art degree course as well as Masters students, have been chosen by Clarissa to showcase their work in the Universe of Possibility exhibition at UCLan’s Hanover Building. Featuring paintings, sculptures and drawings they all explore sound, landscape and memory in different ways.
One of the students, Ruth Tyson, has engraved an image of the North Sea’s Beryl B oil rig onto Perspex pexio chemical plastic to connect her artwork to its original roots.
She said: “It’s really exciting to be selected to take part in this exhibition by Clarissa and I’ve really enjoyed working with her and the rest of the group to make it a success.”

UCLan fine art lecturer David Mackintosh welcomed Clarissa to the University. He said: “Since arriving at the Harris Museum Clarissa has made a big impact on the Preston art scene by bringing some much needed funding to the area. This exhibition is a great example of the growing relationship between UCLan and the Harris Museum.”
The Clarissa Corfe Selects: Universe of Possibility exhibition is open to the general public until Thursday 7 May on week days between 10.00am – 5.00pm at the Hanover Building on Bhailok Street. For more information visit www.hanoverproject.wordpress.com or follow @Hanover_Project on Twitter.
