Joseph Bulmer

End of year exhibition by graduating art degree students

THE first ever art exhibition to be held on the new Petroc Brannams Campus site at Roundswell is now under way and has a sophisticated and colourful variety of work by graduating degree students.

Pigments, Pixels and Particles runs until July 2 and is open to the public from 10am-4pm, with free admission. It is part of the North Devon Festival.

The 2011 Art and Design Degree Show is the culmination of years of hard work by Foundation Degree students in ceramics, fine art and illustration.

The 31 students taking part in the exhibition have produced an array of imaginative from satirical drawings and children’s art to full sized paintings, textiles and innovative sculpture, including the return of ceramics to the former Brannam’s Pottery site.

Spread through the newly created buildings of the Brannam campus, the work on view has something to offer and intrigue all artistic tastes.

“Local art is always appreciated by locals and visitors alike and can enhance the atmosphere of a room or event,” said Anthony Martin, fourth year FDA illustration student.

“Many of the fine artists, ceramicists and illustrators from Petroc have been able to use their talent in the real world of art and publishing, such is the standard of the work produced.”

The Brannams Campus can be found at Oakwood Close on Roundswell Business Park. Visitors are asked to report to reception on arrival. For more information about the exhibition, visit www.petroc.ac.uk or call (01271) 852341 or 852335.
