Discover Londons Newest Artistic Talent

Art lovers are in for a treat as two new exhibitions open in West London offering the chance to discover talented, up and coming artists.

The two exhibitions – ‘Becoming’ and ‘Maelstrom’ – will run alongside each other for just one week only at the Chelsea Centre Gallery, Kensington and Chelsea College, Hortensia Road.

Both exhibitions are free to attend and guests will have an exclusive opportunity to discover London’s finest emerging artists as well as purchase some of the cutting edge artwork on display.

‘Maelstrom’ will be showcasing the work of artists graduating from Kensington and Chelsea College’s Fine Art courses, and will include a mix of painting, sculpture, video and installation.

‘Becoming’ brings together a stunning collection of Paintings, sculpture, Installations, 3D Design, Fashion, Graphic Design and Photography work produced by artists from the College’s Foundation Art & Design courses.

Both exhibitions run from Friday June 27 until Friday July 4, at the College’s Chelsea Centre, Hortensia Road SW10 0QS. The Gallery is open weekdays 10am – 9pm Monday to Thursday and Friday 9am – 5pm.

A special Private View will also be taking place on Thursday June 26 for both exhibitions from 6pm – 9pm. On the night special guest Susan Sluglett, one the College’s Fine Art Alumni and a Jerwood Painting Fellow, will also present the College’s Peter Stanley Memorial Award in recognition of outstanding work.

Kensington & Chelsea College is now offering the opportunity to gain a Fine Art BA with London South Bank University in the College’s inspiring Chelsea studios. This top-up degree programme has been designed for students who have successfully completed an HND, Foundation degree or equivalent in Fine Art or a related subject and now wish to convert their existing qualification into a full Fine Art BA honours qualification. With highly commended studios, facilities and teaching staff, this is a unique opportunity to complete a Fine Art degree at a fraction of the price of a degree elsewhere.

The College enjoys a high-profile reputation for excellence in Creative Arts, and has a successful student alumni, which includes Turner prize nominee Marvyn Gaye Chetwynd. The College’s Fine Art Department has a strong track record of producing skilled artists, many of whom progress to postgraduate and undergraduate study at leading institutions including Goldsmith’s College and Camberwell School of Art.
