Degree work to be exhibited in Carmarthen town centre

The public is being encouraged to support emerging creative talent by visiting Carmarthen town centre for an exhibition of work by fine art and sculpture students at Coleg Sir Gâr’s Carmarthen School of Art.

The work has been created by the art school’s sculpture and fine art students currently studying BA honours programmes.

It will feature sculptures, paintings, drawings, photography, film, installations and performance works around a variety of investigative subject matters and conceptual based enquiry.

The summer exhibition, which is free to attend, will be held in Carmarthen town centre in the unit previously known as Topshop from Saturday July 10 to Saturday July 17 from 10am to 6pm.

Lisa Evans, programme director for sculpture at Carmarthen School of Art said: “The work is full of integrity and seeks to share ideas with a wide audience.

“It is an ambitious, honest and experimental response to contemporary life and aims to engage and reveal the high ambitions of Welsh artists trying to make their mark in the world.

“Due to the pandemic, students have endured a period of lived experiences of working remotely away from their studio spaces and have had limited access to workshops.

“These solitary moments have forced them into remaining unified as a cohort and the work reflects their hard work and efforts.” 

Those interested in studying art and design are welcome to visit and speak with students and staff.
