TALENTED Swindon College School of Art students are inviting the public to see their work at their Graduate Show.
Fine art, illustration and photography are just some of the skills that students will be exhibiting in their work at Station Square, in the town centre, from Friday until June 5.
The show includes work from Masters, Degree and Higher National Diploma students.
Deputy curriculum manager for the School of Art, Greg Rendell, said: “The standard is excellent. It is great to see the diversity that art and design can offer. Some students have done fine art work, which is very conceptual, while on the other side the graphic design students have completed industry standard branding projects.”
The show includes work from MA archaeological illustration students, BA (Hons) fine art: drawing for fine art practice students, and BA (Hons) graphic design students.
There is also work from BA (Hons) illustration: narrative and sequential students, Higher National Diploma photography students and Higher National Diploma production arts: media make-up students.
The show will be open from 10am until 7pm on May 31, from 10am until 4pm on June 1, 10am until 7pm on June 3 and June 4, and 10am until noon on June 5.
There will also be a private show for invited guests, including employers who may want to use the students’ skills, on June 3.
A total of 40 students are exhibiting their work.
“There is a big variety because this year for the first time we have got HND media make-up students. Their work includes full body painting and wig making,” said Mr Rendell.
The show has previously been held at Kembrey Park and Mr Rendell said they are hoping that their new location in the town centre will mean that more people can attend.
Richard Waring, head of the Swindon College School of Art, said: “Our graduate students are from an exciting range of programmes. The 2013 graduate exhibition is a time to really celebrate the achievements of our students. Their developments from starting their course of study has been quite significant.
“Our thriving School of Art has been welcoming creative practitioners since 1896. We sincerely thank each student who chose to study with us and wish them all the best with their future opportunities.”
The show is in Station Square, 1 Gloucester Street, Swindon For more information visit http://www.swindon-college.ac.uk/news/school-art-final-show-dates-2013.
