FIRST STEPS EXHIBITION
CELEBRATING THE NEXT GENERATION OF
CREATIVE TALENT IN THE SOUTH WEST
Duchy Square Centre for Creativity, which opened earlier this year in Princetown, is hosting a joint exhibition during August 2009 of some of the best of this year’s graduating students work from Plymouth College of Art and the University of Plymouth’s Faculty of Arts.
The exhibition is titled ‘First Steps’ and celebrates the next generation of creative talent in the South West. The exhibition showcases art, design and media work from the College and the University’s Faculty of Art’s most recent graduates.
This is the first time that the college and university have collaborated on an exhibition like this with the Duchy Square Centre for Creativity, and it is hoped that these joint events will become a regular occurrence.
Because the work this year from all of the graduating students was of such a high quality, it was a really difficult decision to select pieces for the First Steps exhibition. But everyone agrees that the final choices look great in the Duchy Square main gallery.
The Duchy Square Centre for Creativity is managed and operated by Integria Ltd, the creative consultancy which is helping to nurture artistic talent by providing a diverse range of practitioners with an outlet to promote and sell their work. Supported by a number of organisations, including Duchy of Cornwall and Devon County Council, the centre offers low cost, workshop space on two floors and is helping to boost the local economy by connecting creative businesses with other key industry sectors.
The First Steps exhibition opens with a Private Viewing on Wednesday 29th July from 6pm until 8pm, and will then be open until Monday 31st August. The exhibition is free for all to attend.
