Emerging Artists Showcase Latest Collection

A group of talented artists from Kensington and Chelsea College will be showcasing exclusive new work in one of the capital’s most unusual exhibition venues.

For three days in May artists from the College’s Higher Education Fine Art courses will be taking over the Crypt Gallery, St Pancras Church, Euston Road, to stage their end of year show, ‘Hidden’.

The historic gallery will be the backdrop for a stunning collection of installation artwork including painting, sculpture and digital art.

The labyrinth of atmospheric nooks and crannies at the gallery provides each artist with the chance to work within a unique architectural space, exploring their own unique themes.

‘Hidden’ is free to attend and runs from Friday May 9th to Sunday May 11th. The gallery is open 11am – 7pm Friday-Saturday, and 11am – 4pm on Sunday.

The exhibition will officially open with a Private View at the gallery on Thursday May 8th, 6pm – 9pm, where guests can meet the artists behind the work.

A special artists’ seminar exploring the work on show will also be held at the venue on Friday May 9th, 3pm – 5pm.

HND course director Anjum Moon said: “Hidden is about visually subtle messages that aren’t immediately apparent. The exhibition is about going beyond the obvious and surprising people. The artists aren’t afraid to push boundaries, and you can see that through the fantastic range of work on show.”

Hidden is the work of artists who have studied or are currently studying on the College’s HNC and HND Fine Art courses.

Kensington and Chelsea College enjoys a high-profile reputation for excellence in Creative Arts, and has a successful student alumni, which includes Turner prize nominee Spartacus 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.
