University College Falmouth presents material evidence to
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.
