Upcoming Exhibition: An Unofficial Alumni

Cover Photo
After 9 years, 2013 marks the end of degree courses at University Campus Barnsley being run by the University of Huddersfield. An Unofficial Alumni is a showcase of working artists who studied or taught at the campus during these years. These artists have go on to work in a diverse range on medias, including painting, photography, ceramics, design and installation art.
We have a conviction that individual efforts, brought together, show that a strong body of intelligent and challenging work has been create…d by artists who studied or taught within a building situated in the very centre of Barnsley. We are committed to celebrating this in the town where it was cultivated. Barnsley is a northern English town that has often been overlooked as an area for generating art/artists; we believe any attempt to help shift this status is important to further development of the town’s culture.
Artists: Lee Gasgoyne, Corinne White, David Jarvis, Richard Turner, John Ledger, Louise Wright, Steve Ellis, Gemma Brookes, Andrew William Parker, Emma Wroe, Shane Wogan, Robert Nunns, Julie Newton
Thursday 19th September – Friday 4th October, open Monday – Friday, 10:00am – 4:00pm
Preview: Weds 18th Sept, 6:30-9pm

About John Ledger

A visual Artist, eternal meanderer and obsessive self-reflector by nature, who can’t help but try to interpret everything from within the tide of society. His works predominantly take the form of large scale ballpoint pen landscape drawings and map-making as social/psychological note-making. They are slowly-accumulating responses to crises inflicted upon the self in the perplexing, fearful, empty, and often personality-erasing human world.
