Swansea College of Art celebrates a successful summer exhibition series


24.05.2018

The exhibitions being showcased in Swansea celebrate the work of students at the college as part of their final assessments.

Swansea Open Days

 

They are open to the public until June 1. After being shown in Swansea, the exhibitions will then travel to London where they will be displayed in venues and exhibitions around the city.

The school has seven exhibitions altogether, including illustration, advertising and brand design, photography and fine art, graphic design, film and digital television, and an exhibition that comprises the work of students undertaking design degrees including surface pattern design, product design, automotive and transport design, glass, animation, and games design. Students exhibiting their work at the Advertising and Brand Design graduate show will have their work displayed in the Penderyn Suite at Swansea’s Liberty Stadium, while Graphic Design students’ work will be displayed in the Arts Wing of the Swansea Grand Theatre. Both of these shows are open to the public.   

The exhibitions will then make their way to London where they will be shown at New Designers, an annual industry event that brings together design professionals from all over the UK. Photography students will also see their work exhibited at the Copeland Gallery in Peckham.

Professor Ian Walsh, Dean of Art and Design, said: "Swansea College of Art’s season of summer shows is an established British cultural institution. For over 160 years the College has exhibited the very best young talent from our range of leading art, design and media courses. This summer’s showcase is our biggest by far and is a real celebration of our graduates' creativity and hard work.”
