Uclan AA2A'ers present to year 3 Fine Art students, 22nd March 2018
Following on from Hollie's recent blog post:
Rika Jones, Benedict Rutherford, Shelley Burgoyne, Alexander de Vol, and I all had a great opportunity to meet a group of final year fine art students last week. We each spoke about our work, past and present, and answered questions. I conveyed the process involved in a recent museum commission. Ben spoke about his art practice and his involvement with The Birley Artists Studios in Preston. Rika offered up some great advice about undertaking an MA, for students curious to know more about continuing to postgraduate study. Alex described his previous profession in menswear design and manufacture, along with some of the reasons behind his decison to change direction and move into ceramics and craft. Shelley Burgoyne is currently exhibiting her prints in the corridor close to the printmaking workshop in Victoria Building, at Uclan, and her very lively presentation took place there and in the printmaking studio, where she has been working. It was a productive and really interesting morning and the artists continued their discussions over lunch together in a nearby campus cafe. Lots of new ideas brewing ....
It was an enjoyable and stimulating event. Many thanks to all involved.
