Place: 508 Kings Road Art Gallery, Kings Road, Chelsea SW10 0LD
Students from the HND Fine Art course at Kensington & Chelsea College will be taking over 508 Kings Road Art Gallery in Chelsea to present their end-of-year show to art lovers from across the capital.
Featuring a range of work including painting, sculpture, installation and photography, the exhibition promises an exciting glimpse into the artistic practices of these emerging artists as they complete the equivalent of their second year of a BA degree.
From Charlotte Fraser’s colourful yet poignant oil paintings to Louise Richards’ wearable sculptures, and from Alex Purcell’s message-heavy collage to Terry Barber’s sculpted cardboard installation, the work will provoke thought as well as surprise and entertain. Many of the exclusive artworks will also be for sale. There will be a seminar on the last day of the show, Saturday 20 May, from 2-5pm, when visitors will have the chance to join in a discussion of the artists’ work and ask questions.
The exhibiting artists are: Terry Barber, Charlotte Fraser, Felix Jude, Maie Moussa, Alex Purcell, Louise Richards, Nazanin Sarabi, Katherine Skinner and Natalie Wells.
Course director Jane Eyton says: ‘This will be one of the strongest HND Fine Art shows to date. The students have worked extremely hard this year and have shown real progression, independence and achievement in their ideas, materials and promotion of their creative practice. Come and support them at the 508 Gallery, situated in an extremely central location, to see their new work.’
Notes to editors: The NINE artists are studying HND Fine Art at Kensington & Chelsea College, the equivalent of the second year of a BA (Hons) degree. They progressed to this from HNC Fine Art. The college also runs a Fine Art BA (Hons) top-up, validated by London South Bank University, which many of the featured artists aim to progress to in order to gain their full Fine Art BA (Hons) degrees.
