Exhibitions Shine The Spotlight On West London’s Finest Art And Design Talent
Two stunning exhibitions celebrating the work of emerging talent from Kensington and Chelsea College came to a close with wide-spread praise from attending art and design enthusiasts, the V&A and a range of dignitaries.
The college’s end-of-year shows are always hugely popular and 2013 proved no different with hundreds of guests attending both the Fine Art Show held at the Chelsea Centre and the Art and Design Show held at the Wornington Centre.
Students from across a range of courses including HNC Fine Art, Foundation Art and Design, Jewellery, Graphic Design and Interior Design proved their creative flair with a plethora of cutting edge work.
The eclectic student collections were described by guests as
‘showing an astounding level of skill’,
‘truly impressive’ and
‘on par with the services being offered by creative agencies and already established designers’.
The praise was further testament to the college’s already high-profile reputation for excellence in Creative Arts and impressive list of famous art alumni which includes Turner prize nominee Spartacus Chetwynd, Julie Bennett who was labelled
‘one of Saatchi’s new stars’ by The Independent and Jerwood Painting Fellow, Susan Sluglett.
A special memorial award was also presented during the Chelsea Centre exhibition in recognition of the most outstanding piece of work to be featured in the HNC Fine Art and Foundation Art collections. The award was in memory of Peter Stanley, the former head of the college’s Art Department.
