Degree show

We visited the Fine Art and Cartoon degree shows at Staffordshire University today, and I have to say that I was very impressed. I think they were probably the best I’ve seen in years. I haven’t included any images because of copyright. In the Fine Art section there was a lot more figurative work and portraiture than I’ve seen in years. There was also a lot of diversity which was great. In the Cartoon section there were a lot of fun ideas and comic strips. I chatted to some of the students there and they were very helpful explaining what they do.

I realised as I went round that the work is relevant to my illustration course. I really enjoyed the day.

Fine art shows.

I have no images to show…yet

This years fine art degree shows at Staffordshire University are on this week. Thirty nine years after I got my degree. I’ve visited almost every year except 2020. This year it’s on but you have to book a time slot and have a lateral flow test before you can go…. So I had to frantically find somewhere to have one done with enough time to spare to get to the shows afterwards. Anyway I’m looking forward to it. Great to be able to go and see real art in a real gallery space.

Went to see the fine art degree shows, for copyright reasons I haven’t taken photos. Overall impression? Interesting and different. I’m feeling old fashioned because I use paint and canvas.

I suppose things have changed a lot over the forty years since I started my degree.

By the way I appear to have used up all my memory space on here in the six months since the start of the year. I may have to change my plan to carry on posting photos here!
