ART AT THE GRANDSTAND

 

A one-off exhibition of conceptual art by Lincoln School of Art and Design students will go on display at the Grandstand Community Centre tomorrow (13th April).

 

The work has been produced by students from years one, two and three of the Fine Art degree course and will offer a mixed and wide-ranging display.

 

The exhibits attempt to explore and understand the world around us, acknowledging and utilising situations and experiences and giving a true taste of the quality of work created by the students.

 

“Conceptual art is often still perceived as inaccessible to the general public, particularly in a more traditional city like Lincoln,” said Stephen White, third-year Fine Art student.

 

“We just want to help break down some of the barriers and hopefully open people up to new ideas.  Whether the work is appreciated by the public or not, we hope they can draw something from it.”

 

More traditionally-based pieces such as screen prints and paintings will also be on display and some students may be present to discuss their work.

 

The work will be displayed in an informal manner to emphasise the point that art does not have to be intimidating.

 

The exhibition is free of charge and will be open between 2.00pm and 7.00pm at the Grandstand Community Centre, Carholme Road, Lincoln.
