CREATIVE WORK THAT TELLS A STORY

 

Every piece of art tells a story, from memories to interpretations, from dreams to abstract images. University of Lincoln Art and Design students are inviting everyone to come and have a look at their uniquely different end of year shows.

 

Students from the Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design are showcasing their best work at their end of year shows throughout the month of May.

 

An example of excellent work is Fine Art student Alan Armstrong who was recently shortlisted for the prestigious Celeste Art Prize for his work featured in the end of year show.

 

Alan was shortlisted from a strong selection of 918 submissions. He said: I think that I use painting in a unique way and that is why I entered. The criteria for entering was to promote painting in the widest sense and the piece I submitted was quite unusual.

 

I found an old chair in the Arboretum on Monks Road, so I did a painting of it half red and the other half in its old state. My work can be seen at The Greestone Gallery until the 18th May.

 

There is something for everyone at the shows including photography, short films, fine art, interactive design, illustration, fashion, graphic design and creative advertising.

 

All of the shows are free and open to everyone. Venues include the Gatehouse Gallery, Thomas Parker House, Chad Varah House and The Greestone Gallery.
