We are proud to announce the upcoming exhibition from eight Masters of Fine Art from Hereford College of Arts with the launch of their newest show STRATA.
The show’s name takes its inspiration from the layers of diverse artwork within the newly formed amalgam8 art collective. On show will be a diverse collection of new contemporary drawing, painting, sculpture, installations, film, video, photography, projections, ranging from large pieces to smaller artworks as well as limited editions.
When many other art institutions have cancelled their end of year graduate and postgraduate shows or opted for an online presence only, HCA’s MA Fine Art show promises a unique opportunity to see this eclectic mix of contemporary art in nearby Canwood Gallery.
All eight artists are exhibiting new work which has resulted in an innovative show, despite the upheavals to working practices through the Coronavirus pandemic. If anything, continuing to work in the face of adversity has only brought the creative cohort closer.
The exhibition has been facilitated by the tireless support of the Fine Art team at HCA, including Course Leader Dr Daniel Pryde-Jarman, Dr Jonathan Whitehall and Mark Houghton, who were determined that the students should have a chance to showcase their work.
Following current social distancing guidelines, we will open to the public from 11-4pm from Saturday 10th October until Sunday 18th (Closed Monday 14th and Tuesday 15th) in the stunning location of Canwood, which boasts a permanent contemporary sculpture park and ample parking. The artists will be on hand for informal tours/talks.
The exhibition promises to be a celebration of the fighting fit spirit of the art world in the West Midlands.
