HNC Fine Art Show: Larvatus Prodeo

HNC Fine Art Show:

A unique exhibition is giving a platform to emerging artists to debut their work to art lovers across London.

For 6 days in March the exhibition space at the Chelsea Centre Gallery, based at Kensington and Chelsea College will host ‘Larvatus Prodeo’ – a stunning exhibition of Fine Art.

Guests will be able to enjoy an exciting mix of painting, sculpture, video and installation.

‘Larvatus Prodeo’ is free to attend and runs from March 27 – April 2. It is being held at the College’s Chelsea Centre, Hortensia Road, London SW10 0QS. The Gallery is open weekdays 10am – 9pm Monday to Thursday and Friday 9am – 5pm.

Those interested in learning more about work on display can also meet the artists during a Private View, which is also open to the public, being held on Wednesday March 26 at the College’s Chelsea Centre. The Private View is also free to attend.

The exhibition is the work of 21 artists currently studying on the College’s HNC Fine Art course.

Speaking about the course, HNC Fine Art student Nina Farrall said: “It has been brilliant so far. In just over one term I’ve been able to explore and expand my ideas across many disciplines, in both traditional and new media. The tuition and facilities have enabled me to develop a body of work I’m really proud of, and I have just won me an offer to study BA Sculpture at Camberwell.”

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.

Greg Rook, HNC Fine Art Course Director at the College, said: “Our HNC Fine Art course has moved from strength to strength. Not only do we offer the course considerably cheaper than many other places, we are also offering, subject to validation, a Fine Art BA top up. Our alumni demonstrate our longstanding success at helping students progress to these higher levels. This exhibition will showcase work that is thoughtful, relevant and exciting.”
