Art students from Lews Castle College UHI – based at Taigh Chearsabhagh – have marked the end of a successful academic year with the opening of the annual Open Studio exhibition last night.
Running from now until 20th June, the show features work created using a variety of different media, ranging from drawing and paintings to sculpture and video-based pieces.
As ever, the launch of the exhibition was well attended, with friends and family members, alongside former students and art enthusiasts, keen to catch a glimpse of some of the work created by the students.
Opening the exhibition, Anne MacKenzie, NC Art and Design Course Leader, thanked her fellow tutors Dennis Magee and Michelle Letowska, visiting lecturers, life models, staff at Taigh Chearsabhagh and the wider community for its support of the students and courses.
Addressing the students, she added: “You have all worked so hard and have been a joy to work with.
“Good luck for your future studies.”
Lews Castle College UHI offers an NC in Art and Design and BA level 1 and 2 courses, with opportunities for full-time and part-time study. Courses are based at Taigh Chearsabhagh and applications for next session are welcomed.
No previous experience is required for the open access NC. It is considered ideal for portfolio preparation or those seeking to re-engage with art for a year or more, particularly adults returning to education.
More advanced students can study for the first two years of a degree in art, the remaining two years being completed through Moray College.
