Inspirational work of Art & Design students to go on display at Bank Quay House

The incredible work of talented Art & Design students at Warrington Collegiate will go on display at The Gallery at Bank Quay House Gallery this week.

Tapestries, paintings, photography, handmade clothing and knitted creatures make up the impressive exhibition, which has previously been on display at the Winwick Road campus.

Sponsored by FDR Law, the exhibition showcases the hard work students have done over the last two years. It explores a number of themes, with every discipline and taste on show from interior design and surface pattern to fine art and photography.

Students have spent countless hours working on their art and for some, it is their final show at the College before they progress to Higher Education or employment.

The exhibition at Bank Quay House, named ‘Edit’ will open during a Private Viewing on Thursday 30th June 5pm – 7pm, and will remain on display until 2nd August.

The work has been selected by Curator Emma Kelly.

One piece of work that will be on display is that of Art & Design Foundation Diploma Level 3 student Laura McFadden, whose adorable knitted and crocheted jelly fish, snails, pom-poms and dolls recently took over Queen’s Gardens as part of a ‘yarn bombing’ project.

The 29-year-old said: “Seeing my work out there for people to see makes me feel accomplished in a way that I am ready for the new challenges ahead.”

Rebecca Rogers, Programme Leader for Art Foundation at the College, said: “We are really proud of our students and the destinations they are moving on to from Higher Education and employment. The students have shown real commitment to learning and publicised what vast creative talent we have within the College.”
