Plymouth College of Art’s Summer Show extravaganza welcomed over 1,000 visitors through its doors when it opened to the public this weekend.
New for this year, students are selling some of their work.
Representatives from the region’s creative industries attended a VIP launch on Friday night and students, friends and families celebrated on Saturday with music from Ben Carr and the Hot Rats.
Work on display includes fine art, film, animation, games design, photography, graphic design and illustration, fashion and textiles, glass, metals, ceramics, jewellery and more.
The ground floor shows highlights from last month’s Foundation Diploma Show, as well as short courses and apprenticeships.
On the lower ground floor, is the work of designers and makers in glass, metals, jewellery and ceramics students who have already exhibited at Bovey Tracey’s Contemporary Craft Fair and New Designers in London.
The first floor is a technicolour explosion of ideas and the opportunity to watch and play games made by the college’s games design students.
On the second floor, visitors can watch films made by award-winning filmmakers including Rotten by Robert Cooper, a mockumentary about zombies and whether or not they should be treated as equal to humans.
The entire college, including ‘Studio 11’ on Regent Street, is open as a free public gallery until June 29.
