Does anyone else love going to their local University's end of year art show? I love it - it's one of the highlights of my year! I'm always overwhelmed at the skill exhibited and the sheer variety of work on display. These are a few of my favourite things from Manchester's art students this year -
A whole town (and tiny townspeople) made from paperand ink
I loved this collection of beautiful and faded things - I really like the way the artist has used empty frames to emphasise certain parts of her display
There was also quite a bit of "proper" painting this year! I found this triptych very striking, and I love how you can't fully make out the face -I am always intruiged by things hinted at rather than seen!
And as for the textiles - well, I could happily spend a whole day looking at those! How gorgeous is this exotic fabric?
Most universities and art colleges have end of year shows and work is often for sale, it's a great afternoon out and you never know - you may even spot the next Tracey Emin!
