Design Pre-Degree show on at Gray’s

Final year students at Gray’s School of Art are preparing to showcase their work at two upcoming exhibitions next week.

Interim design exhibition 2015Almost 100 design students, spanning fashion and textiles, communication design, product design and 3D design, will see the curtain lift on their interim design exhibition on Monday, February 9.

The exhibition, which will be on display at Gray’s until Friday, February 13, offers an insight into the students’ projects ahead of the final Degree Show in June.

Gregor Wittrick (21), a 3D design student, will be among those displaying his work at the show.

His project is aimed at exploring the link between food and ceramics and he is looking forward to presenting it to a new audience.

He said: “Everyone seems excited, though a bit nervous about the interim show.

“It’ll be the first exhibition, for some, and the first time showing work to a completely new audience – students and tutors as well as people from outside of the art school.

“Presenting your achievements from the last six months to anyone who hasn’t seen any of the idea behind it can seem quite daunting.

“Their reactions to our pieces will really let us know how we’re doing, which will be very helpful.”

Gregor added: “It will be a really nice event to catch up with everyone and see just what and how each of us is doing.”

In addition, 34 Contemporary Art Practice (CAP) students will be preparing to launch their pre-degree exhibition at Peacock Visual Arts on Thursday, February 12 at 6pm.

Running until Saturday, February 14, the event will feature printmaking, sculpture, moving image and photography

Lindsay Milne (20) is among those exhibiting and said: “People can expect a diverse range of works within contemporary fine art that represents the finest artists of our generation.”
