Edinburgh’s Telford College is delighted to be returning to the Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop for the College’s annual HND Contemporary Art Practice’s Final Year Show which will be exhibiting at the Newhaven workshop from Saturday 28 May to Wednesday 1 June 2011.
Edinburgh’s Telford College has had a long relationship with Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop, connecting Telford’s art learners with a professional art environment for a number of years.
Through the years, the art learners from the College have held exhibitions at the prestigious north Edinburgh art space, which has given rise to a number of collaborative initiatives between the Telford learners and the ESW staff, such as professional practice days and learners from the College also receive ESW membership to allow them not only access to exclusive exhibitions, but also to a range of professional development opportunities and employment.
Telford’s Lecturer in Fine Art, Jennie Temple is a former member of the Board of Directors and Telford Curriculum Leader, Alan Holligan is Chair of the ESW Artistic Sub Committee. Commenting on the forthcoming exhibition, Jennie Temple said:
“It is always a great pleasure for the College to be showcasing our students’ work within the professional surroundings of Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop. This year’s HND Contemporary Art Practice graduates are an exceptional group of learners who are finishing on a high note.
“Our largest final year group for some time will represent the diverse range of work being made on the course. From painting and sculpture to film, photography and installation, regardless of method you will find work that is intelligent, thought-provoking and very much at home in the professional surroundings of ESW. We look forward to welcoming audiences to what we hope will be a stimulating exhibition.”
The exhibition will run from Saturday 28 May to 1 June 2011. There is a launch evening from 6pm to 8pm on Friday 27 May. If you are interested in attending this, please email Alan Holligan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
