Art exhibition at library

Posted onPosted on 28th Mar

Art and design students at Vision West Nottinghamshire College will be staging a pop-up exhibition of their work at Mansfield Library for one week.

Extended Diploma Art and Design, and Foundation Art and Design students, will be showcasing the range of processes and techniques used to produce their coursework in the library’s first floor exhibition space.

Artwork selected by the students from their own portfolios will be exhibited from Monday, 31st March to Sunday, 6th April.

On display will be photography, painting, print work, textiles and drawing and design produced during their time at the college’s Chesterfield Road campus.

Student Frank Jory (68), of Ollerton, said: “As a mature student I have possibly gained the most from the tutors and students alike, considering I had very little artistic elements in my previous career.

“At the end of the course I hope to continue as a practising artist in print and textile. I’d also like to set up an agency to assist local young student artists to exhibit their work, and will be looking at the local business community to assist in further pop-up facilities for such events.”

The library is open Monday to Friday, from 8.30am-5pm, Saturday, 9am-4pm and Sunday, 11am-3pm.
