Opening of students’ annual exhibition


ART STUDENTS at Angus College have opened their annual exhibition to showcase their work over the year.

On Thursday the HNC contemporary art students, who come from across Angus, held a preview show for an invited audience before opening for a week to the general public in Arbroath Library.

The exhibition includes a range of pieces from traditional paintings to interpretive sculptures produced by up-and-coming artists. This year the show features a green theme running through all the artists’ work as they have explored methods of using recycled and eco-friendly materials throughout their course. The process has resulted in many unique pieces.

Art and Design course leader Fergus McLachlan said: “The students were given the task to put this exhibition together and they have done a great job of organising everything from the venue to promotion.

“The artworks featured in the exhibition reflect the diversity of artistic styles which have developed within this HNC class. I would encourage members of the public to come along to the exhibition and view the impressive works on display.”

HND students, meanwhile, have become the first to host their end-of-year exhibition in a new purpose-built studio space created by Introduction to Construction students. The exhibition, which opens to the public in the college’s Clova Building next Monday, May 30, will displaying the wide range of paintings and sculptures produced by the students throughout the year.
