HNC Fine Art students at Kensington and Chelsea College take an important step in their artistic development this week, with a mid-year Show at the College’s Chelsea Centre.
Entitled Interim Exhibition, the show is a rich mix of artistic styles and media from a diverse group of artists. Some hail from Croatia, China and Spain, and others from careers in arts management, interior design, graphic design, software design and journalism.
The HNC is one of the most successful fine art courses in London. Alumni include Turner Prize nominee Marvin Gaye Chetwynd and Jerwood painting fellow Susan Sluglett. An increasing number of students now complete the College’s new BA Fine Art top-up, validated by London South Bank University. Many progress to BA and MA courses at the Royal College, Chelsea, Camberwell, Goldsmiths and other prestigious locations.
Course director Greg Rook said: “These courses deliver the highest standard of training, for lower fees than other similar courses. This year’s students are full of fresh ideas. We are proud to be showing work that is thoughtful, relevant and exciting.”
Interim Exhibition Thu and Fri 1-2 Mar and Mon – Wed 5-7 Mar (10am-4pm), Hortensia Gallery, Chelsea Building, Hortensia Road, London SW10 0QS. Private view Wed 28 Feb 6-8pm.
