Visual Arts students exhibit work in a local gallery

Artwork created by students from the Canterbury School of Visual Arts (CSVA) have been selected to be exhibited at Gallery 64A in Whitstable. Curator and owner, Rob Mumby, came to visit the College last week and chose a number of students to display their artwork at a private viewing on Saturday 8th September.

During the first week of their course, staff from Gallery 64A visited the students to speak about professional practice elements and gave handy tips regarding progressing in the world of commercial art. They also viewed the students’ summer projects, visited the Palette Gallery and chose pieces of artwork from the CSVA to be exhibited.

The successful students were a mixture of progressing students and alumni who have just finished their course with the College, all of whom were invited to the private viewing on Saturday.

Level 3 Art & Design student Shem Morgan, who showcased his work on Saturday, said:
“Being involved in the exhibition was a great opportunity and I was so pleased to be selected. The gallery was very well put together and was in a fantastic location. The viewing was a great success.”

Aemelia Rose Turton, also a Level 3 Art & Design student, was equally pleased to be selected and enjoyed her experience. She said:
“Working with Gallery 64A was really interesting and gave me an exciting insight into the commercial art industry. It was useful to get to work so closely with the professionals.”

The exhibition, which opened on Saturday, now runs until the end of the month. Click here for information on how you can visit.
