Art students work on display at Stracathro Hospital

Year Two HND Contemporary Art Practice Students at Dundee and Angus College will be exhibiting their work in the pavilion in the grounds of Stracathro Hospital.

The students who are based at the Arbroath Campus will have their work displayed from Monday 3rd April through to Monday 1st May.

The exhibition is open to the public - Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 3.30pm – and presents a single piece of artwork from each student highlighting a breadth of specialisms. This includes photography, painting, printmaking, needle felting, mixed media and digital illustrations.

The artwork will be available for purchase at £50 per piece with 20% of the proceeds going to Stracathro which will enhance the hospital environment for patients and visitors.

The exhibit celebrates the diversity of the Dundee and Angus College student body with an age range of 48 years between the youngest and oldest exhibiting HND2 artists.

A selection of pieces from 1st year HND Contemporary Art Practice students will also be on display as part of the exhibition.

Oonagh Devoy Senior Art Lecturer at Dundee and Angus College said, “Getting work out of the studio and into the public view is such an important step for building our student’s confidence as artists. It really helps to showcase the variety of different skills and approaches to creativity that we nurture across our Contemporary Art Practice programme.”
