College Exhibition Brings Creative Talent To The Surface
Kensington and Chelsea College’s latest external exhibition received praise from art lovers as it opened to applause during a special private view.
The opening night for
‘Surface’ saw guests enjoying a stunning collection of work produced by the college’s art alumni stars and their former tutors, who are also established, practising artists.
Backed by Winsor & Newton and Liquitex – two of the biggest manufacturers of art materials – the exhibition pushed the boundaries of painting and explores its expressive potential.
A guest at the event said:
‘There is some fantastic work on display. This exhibition is a great opportunity to showcase established and new artistic talent to the local community’
Among those featured in the exhibition are former HNC Fine Art students Julie Bennett who was labelled
‘one of Saatchi’s new stars’ by The Independent and Susan Sluglett, who was recently selected for the prestigious Jerwood Painting Fellowship.
‘Surface’ is free to attend, runs until June 16, and is being hosted at The Gallery – one of West London’s newest and exclusive exhibition spaces. The Gallery is an exciting new artists’ space linked to Winsor & Newton’s office at the Studio Building, Evesham Street, London W11.
