Winchester School of Art showcases emerging art and design talent
From fine art to fashion, the work of talented young artists and designers from Winchester School of Art will be showcased in its annual Degree Show, which opens to the public on Saturday 19 June.
The annual degree shows are the culmination of three years of undergraduates' hard work and experience at WSA. Every June the entire School is transformed into the largest gallery in Hampshire for a short period as the students show off their final assessment work in painting, printmaking, sculpture, visual art, textile art, knitted textiles, printed textiles, woven textiles and fashion.
On Friday 18 June Professor Bill Wakeham, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Southampton, will attend a private view before the show opens to the general public.
The Degree Show 2004 is open to the public on Saturday 19 June between 11am and 3pm and from Monday 21 June until Friday 25 June between 11am and 8pm every day.
