University College Falmouth's Summer Shows 2006 showcase the best of the best

Final-year students from University College Falmouth will exhibit an impressive selection of cutting-edge work from a diverse range of courses at the College's annual showcase, which takes place from Tuesday 27th June to Saturday 1st July 2006 at its Woodlane Campus in Falmouth and Tremough Campus in Penryn.

The Woodlane Campus in the heart of Falmouth will be opening its studio doors and inviting visitors to enjoy work produced by students from its Fine Art, Graphic Design, History of Modern Art & Design, Photography, Journalism and Illustration degree courses; its postgraduate diploma in Creative Advertising; and its postgraduate diploma/MA in 20th Century Art & Design.

The College's multi-million-pound Design Centre at Tremough will showcase the very best graduate work from its Contemporary Crafts, Spatial Design: Interior & Landscape, Textile Design and 3D Design for Sustainability degree courses. Added to this eclectic list, work from the new BA (Hons) Garden Design: Arts & Environment course, which has its first graduating cohort this year, promises to cultivate a great deal of attention.

Commencing from Wednesday 28th June, there will also be screenings, show reels and film clips in the Woodlane Lecture Theatre from the College's industry-acclaimed media courses, which include BA (Hons) in Broadcasting, English with Media Studies and Film Studies, and postgraduate diploma/MAs in Broadcast Journalism and Television Production.

"University College Falmouth's Summer Shows are a consistently popular opportunity for final-year students to demonstrate the remarkable fruits of their creative achievements," says director of Marketing & Student Recruitment, Jeremy Whitaker. "Summer Shows 2006 will be no exception and it promises to be an immensely enjoyable and rewarding few days for all who attend and participate."

In addition to the ongoing exhibitions on both campuses, a special Family Day will be held on Saturday 1st July from 11am until 4pm, specifically at the Woodlane Campus, where both children and adults will be invited to unleash the creative beast within through participation in a variety of innovative art workshops.

Artist Oliver West will offer visitors the chance to create their own unique postcards to send from the Summer Shows to family and friends. Inspired by the theme of this year's promotional campaign, which features a butterfly image designed by current second-year BA (Hons) Graphic Design student, Christopher Tozer, children will have the opportunity to work with artist, Ashley Hold and BA (Hons) Fine Art graduates to create imaginative flying objects such as birds and planes.

There will also be a children's storyteller at hourly intervals from 11.30am, listen out for the sound of the conch shell! The College's day nursery staff will also be providing face painting and mask making throughout the day.

The live soundtrack for the Summer Shows Family Day will be provided by Tri Map Harth, a popular Cornish-based musical trio, and local Spanish guitar playing duo, Os Gringos.

A barbecue, bar and light refreshments, including locally produced ice cream from Helsett Farm, will be available at the Woodlane Campus throughout the day.

A free bus service will operate between Woodlane and Tremough from 10.45am to 4pm. Buses will run continuously between those times from the stop outside King Charles School, Woodlane, and will also stop in Penryn outside the Seven Stars public house on their way to and from Tremough.

Summer Shows 2006 are open to the public from 10am to 6pm on Tuesday 27th, Wednesday 28th and Thursday 29th June; from 10am to 4.30pm on Friday 30th June; and from 11am to 4pm on Saturday 1 July. All are welcome. Admission is free.
