Talented Art and Design students at North West Regional College’s Limavady Campus are putting the final touches to a public exhibition of art which will go on display from next week. The exhibition, which begins on Wednesday May 30 at 7 p.m., will display the work created by students at the college over the past year.It includes a number of unique pieces, as well as a variety of drawings, illustrations, paintings, photography, sculpture, prints, textiles, fashion design and multimedia artwork. Work will also be on display by students on the college’s Level 3 and Foundation Diploma courses, which have accreditation from the University of the Arts, London. Last year NWRC became the first college in Ireland to receive the prestigious UAL accreditation for Art and Design. One of exhibitors at the exhibition will be NWRC student Katie Curry, Level 3 Extended Diploma in Art and Design (Design Crafts), who has just accepted a place at the Glasgow School of Art. Katie said: “Coming onto this course I knew I loved Fine Art and wanted to study this more indepth, but I didn’t know just how many different specialist areas I would experience in Limavady. It’s so different from school and there are new teaching approaches, activities and resources I never experiences or had access to before.” Gaenor Speer, Curriculum Manager for Art and Design at NWRC said: “I would like to invite the public to the campus on Wednesday evening (May 30) to see the Art for themselves. “An incredible amount of work has gone into the exhibition this year and staff at NWRC are extremely proud of the amazing creative talents of our students. “The works exhibit the high quality of skills and artistry that our students can create and I’d recommend anyone who enjoys art, media and/or design to come along and see it for themselves.” The work will remain on display at Limavady Campus until June 13 and the work can be viewed Monday to Friday from 10 – 3 p.m. For further details on the Art and Design Courses at NWRC visit www.nwrc.ac.uk/apply
