A mix of students and alumni will showcase work at an exhibition at Maker Heights in July – celebrating the work produced by these emerging artists during their two month residencies.
Since December 2014, all seven artists have had the unique opportunity to work for a two month slot in spacious studios at Maker Heights, situated on Cornwall’s Rame Peninsula.
The studios have been leased by the college for students and alumni to develop their practice in a new, inspirational environment, situated in a stunning location with a close-knit artist community.
Each artist responded to an open call for proposals and were selected to take part based on the strength of their submission.
Exhibiting students – Faith Pallett, Oona Wagstaff, David Muddyman, Sarah Gregory and Kate Targett – are currently studying on our BA (Hons) Painting, Drawing and Printmaking programme.
Their work will be shown alongside two of our alumni, Lee McDonald, a BA (Hons) Fine Art grad, and Eoghan Lewis who studied BA (Hons) Illustration.
There will be future opportunities for alumni and students to apply for a studio slot at Maker Heights. Come to ‘Maker Take' to find out how and why Maker Heights inspired these seven artists and see the diverse work produced.
The ‘Maker Take’ exhibition will launch with a Private View, which is open to all, on Friday 17 July from 6-8.30pm.
