Taking place on the first floor of the Esk Building on Keptie Road the end-of-year exhibition comprised a vastly eclectic mix of high-quality artwork.

As well as a blend of paintings in various media including oils, water colours and acrylics, drawings, there were also sculptures, ceramics, and jewellery.

Photography, both digital and darkroom traditional, was exhibited.

The exhibition showcased the work of the HND contemporary art practice students plus the creations by HNC jewellery and ceramics students and a selection of art from the by students on the certificate course.

“The exhibition reflects the broad nature of the contemporary art practice course,” said lecturer Allan Paris.

“All of the students are encouraged to develop artwork around their own particular personal interests and feelings.

“This leads to a wide variety of subject matter being studied, creating a very diverse art exhibition.

“The end-of-year show is always a poignant occasion as, after spending the last few years at college, the HND students are set to move on.”
