The new exhibition, which will be on display starting next Monday (23 February), features work from the college’s art and design students, as well as students from the media, TV and film courses, and higher education programmes.

It will open inside the Atkins Building, on Lower Bond Street, directly next door to the campus, where it will remain for one week and four days in total – until Friday, 3 February.

Visitors are being encouraged to vote for their favourite artwork, as the winning students will receive prizes.

College staff members will also see their work displayed at another gallery exhibition – titled “Staff Celebration of Skills – Emotional Toast”.

This exhibition will run from February 13 until February 24 and it will showcase the creative arts facilities available on the campus.

James Stanley, Learning and Skills Manager for Creative Arts at the College, said: “The exhibition is a showcase for the students in our weekly competition clubs, which encourage students to develop their skills and pitch themselves and their skills against their peers.

“This is also a great way to focus students’ hearts and minds on their impact on the environment.”

Coun. Keith Nichols, the Borough Council’s Executive Member for Culture, said: “This promises to be two fantastic exhibitions by both students and staff.

“The College has such a fantastic range of talent and I urge people to go and see the creativity on display at both exhibitions.”
