Emerging Artists Summer Show 2014

Kensington and Chelsea College is hosting a special exhibition offering art lovers the chance to discover new talent in sculpture.

‘Emerging Artists Summer Show 2014’ brings together the skill, creativity and artistic talents of 10 budding sculptors.

The exhibition runs from Thursday May 22nd to Friday May 30th, and features a stunning range of dramatic sculptures and eye-catching installations including traditional fired and glazed ceramic pieces to kinetic sculptures that use light and movement.

The sculptors exhibiting range from artists working in both traditional and non-traditional methods of sculpture and experimental artists – all of whom study at Park walk Sculpture Studios.

These courses help artists to fully develop their specialist area of work, within each highly motivated group. These courses include studio space, technical help, tutorial advice and critiques, access to learning resources and exhibition facilities. Tuition is by a team of experienced working artists.

‘Emerging Artists Summer Show 2014’ is free to attend and is being held at the College’s Chelsea Centre Gallery, Hortensia Road, London SW10 0QS. The Gallery is open weekdays 10am – 9pm Monday to Thursday and Friday 9am – 5pm.

The exhibition pieces were produced in the college’s Park Walk Sculpture Studio in Chelsea, West London. Described in the media as an ‘artistic gem’ the dedicated studio has been training sculptors for over 30 years, keeping alive the traditions of Rodin and Michelangelo in the modern age along with encouraging contemporary, abstract and conceptual art works.

The College’s successful Arts Department enjoys a high-profile reputation, and has a successful alumni which includes Turner prize nominee Spartacus Chetwynd and artist Julie Bennett who was labelled ‘one of Saatchi’s new stars’ by The Independent. Kensington and Chelsea College also recently became an associate college member for The National Skills Academy for Creative & Cultural – a status awarded to only a select number of colleges.
