Upcoming Exhibition: An Unofficial Alumni
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
