Flux - An exhibition by City College Students


Saturday night was the private view of another exhibition, and of course I was there! This is a joint show between two groups of students, Access to HE Art and Design and FDA Arts and Wellbeing. The show is on until Thursday and is open from 10am-5pm at Stew gallery on Fishergate which is just off Magadalen St. You can check out the venue here.. www.facebook.com/stewgallery.

Salik Miller's screen-printed typography


There's such an array of media in this show, it's great to see how broad art can be, there's everything from installations to sculpture to photo montage. I enjoyed Salik Miller's use of process colours overlaid to create a 3D effect on his typography pieces. 

Ben Rossi's fashion installation

I thought Rossi's bike hanger was ingenious and looked great, his work focuses on the word 'defunct' and he wanted to create fashion with that in mind, I think he's certainly succeeded in producing marketable garments.

Emma Arnold's peep show

I was stunned by Emma Arnold's original and thought provoking interactive sculpture on body image, when you peep through the drain cover you see bodies and underneath is written what that person thinks of their body and also how they think they are perceived. She won an award on the night and it was well deserved.

James Ayre's photomonatge

Wow, James Ayre's photomontages are a mix of photo, collage and pencil drawings, there are four on display and they are all amazing. The one above depicts St.Stephens underpass abandoned and derelict in a post war aftermath.
There are many more exciting things for you to see and be inspired by at this exhibition, go take a look and tag us in your Instagram pictures of your favourite pieces.
