University College Falmouth presents material evidence to the gallery

An astonishing exhibition of work by second year University College Falmouth BA (Hons) Contemporary Crafts students is currently eliciting a unanimous jury of positive reaction at Falmouth Arts Centre. Entitled 'Material Evidence', the exhibition runs until Wednesday 22 February.

The innovative body of artwork on show has been created from a multitude of materials ranging from the everyday to the obscure, including glass, clay, plastic and wood as well as recycled materials and abandoned objects. The student's designs also demonstrate a clever combining of materials to produce decorative and functional one-off artefacts.

The quality and vibrancy of work on show is demonstrable evidence of the unique educational environment that University College Falmouth's stunning, multi-million-pound Design Centre provides. Students have access to an ICT teaching suite, purpose-built studios, and specialist workshops with computer-aided design technology and equipment for developing their work in a range of materials.

Explaining the importance of exhibitions as a means of encouraging students to enter into the competitive world of artistic display, Jason Cleverly, BA (Hons) Contemporary Crafts course leader adds: "The ability to display their work confidently will stand these students in good stead in their future careers. Public exhibitions also help them to consider their work objectively when taken out of the studio."

Material Evidence is open to the public from 10am to 4pm, Monday to Saturday and admission is free.
