FINE ART STUDENTS HOST NEW EXHIBITION

 

A group of third-year Fine Art students from the University of Lincoln will be demonstrating their artistic talents in Gainsborough from next week with a selection of their work at a special student-organised exhibition.

 

Ten students will be exhibiting their work at the show, entitled ‘Tapestry’, which will be held at West Lindsey District Council’s Trinity Arts Centre in Gainsborough.

 

The showcase will include two and three-dimensional art as well as elements of sound and video. There will also be a special performance piece requiring some audience participation.

 

“The exhibition will be an eclectic mix of artwork which will demonstrate the quality and variety of fine art produced by students at the university,” said ‘Tapestry’ curator Colin Greensmith, a student on the Fine Art degree course.

 

The exhibition starts on Monday 14th March and will run until Monday 25th April. Admission is free and everyone is welcome to attend the exhibition.

 

A special private view evening has also been arranged on Tuesday 22nd March between 6pm and 7.30pm.

 

The event will include refreshments and a special discounted screening of the movie ‘Pollock’, a film about the life and career of the American painter, Jackson Pollock, for £3.
