Foundation students at Plymouth College of Art are putting the final touches to their work before an end-of-year show opens to the public this weekend.
Helen Markes, course manager for the Foundation Diploma students who are exhibiting on May 19, 21 and 22, said: “Not everyone knows this, but Plymouth College of Art undergoes a massive transformation every summer when their studios are turned into exciting free public gallery spaces.
“The Foundation Show is just the beginning of an exciting couple of months where talent spotters in the creative industries, as well as hundreds of the public, step inside our studios and galleries to see what’s been going on behind closed doors.
“In the past it has been that just those ‘in the know’, who are aware of the college’s building at 45 Regent Street, but we are flinging our doors wide open and inviting members of the public to support the burgeoning talent of this year’s art students.
“Our Summer Show is a showcase of the very finest work on their creative journey so far. The course has always been a launch pad preparing students to take up well-earned places on specialist degree programmes at Plymouth College of Art and other top institutions around the UK.”
The show opens to the public on May 19, 21 & 22, from 10 am-2 pm on Saturday and 10am-4pm on weekdays. Friends and family are welcome. The address is 45 Regent Street, PL4 8BB.
The college-wide Summer Show will be open from June 23-19 and the annual Fashion Show is at Plymouth Pavillions on May 24.
