Degree show starts with a bang

Various degree shows at the University of Lincoln kicked off in style last night. Paul Battison went along to see the artwork. 

Hundreds of people turned up to the annual art and design exhibitions, which give students the opportunity to showcase their work to family, friends and potential employers.

Guests were invited for a private viewing of the artwork on Friday night

Work from numerous courses including Illustration, Fine Art and Fashion Studies was on show, and is open to public viewing until June 14th.

The exhibitions are spread across a number of venues in Lincoln, including the Greestone Building and Chad Varah House.

Brian Peacock, a senior Illustration lecturer at the University of Lincoln, explained more about what the degree shows entail:

“It’s a culmination of three years of the student’s hard work and it’s a party and celebration of what they have done,” said Brian.

“From a professional standpoint, it’s useful as well, because we get publishers and many other people who would employ the students come along.

“All the student’s contact details are on show alongside their work for potential employers to jot down.”
