Students' exhibition at Heartlands is great experience
Students from the foundation degree Fine Art programme at Cornwall College Camborne are exhibiting their work in the gallery at Heartlands until 3rd August.
The students have been exhibiting a selection of their work from the academic year in the glass atrium of the Chi an Bobel building on the historic site in Pool. The exhibition includes work by full time and part time students from across the foundation degree programme.
Annie Wade, part-time student from St Columb Major, said: "This is a wonderful opportunity to display the work away from the classroom. It is a light, bright space to exhibit in which shows the fine art textiles at their best. It is a really great space for the show."
The exhibition is open to the public for any visitors to the Heartlands site to go and have a look at. Visitors will be able to see the wide range of projects as well as ‘information points' about each artist and the story behind their piece.
Fellow part-time student from Penzance, Rosie Schneider, whose piece is named "Shades of Rust", said: "It is a lovely space to work and exhibit in, full of natural light. All in all, it is our first show out of college and has been a very positive experience. We all feel really lucky to have had this opportunity."
Val Ashby, Programme Leader for Fine Art at Cornwall College Camborne, said: "I'm really pleased that the students have had this opportunity to display their work professionally in a public space. It's also been a great learning opportunity for them and the exhibition does them great credit. We are all really grateful for the continuous support from the Heartlands team."
You can see the exhibition at Heartlands until Friday 3rd August or if you are interested in studying the FdA Fine Art course, awarded by Plymouth University, at Cornwall College please see www.cornwall.ac.uk for more information.
Heartlands is open every day 10am - 5pm with plenty of activity for all the family.
