Brush up on your art appreciation at students’ Dust exhibition

Nine first year Art and Design degree students based at Forth Valley College’s Stirling Campus will be showing off their work at the ‘Dust’ exhibition event in Bannockburn House this weekend (Saturday 9-Sunday 10 October 2021 from 10am-4pm).

The students from the new BA Art and Design course have produced a mountain of work using Bannockburn House - currently undergoing major renovation works - as a reference point.

Freya Meg Paterson; Hana Thomson; Marina McLaren; Amy Jane Grzebien; Michael Stewart; Emma Watt; Shonah Escombe; Duncan Stewart; and Abbie Taylor are the exhibitors and all currently studying on the innovative Creative Industries FVC course, which focuses on project based learning and live briefs designed to inspire and develop the skills of its students.

Their induction project focused on the interiors, exteriors, hidden spaces, decay and traces of human habitation throughout history and allowed the students to respond to their research in many disciplines, including printmaking, mixed media and painting.

Lecturer Ewan John, said: "The students worked incredibly hard on this project and produced a fantastic amount of mature and considered work in a short period of time. Bannockburn House and its timeless interiors provided a vast amount of research for the students and led to an excellent opportunity to exhibit and work with other organisations, such as Gossip, in the Stirling area.”

GOSSIP Collective are also popping up with an Exhibition, and showcase of the Sketchbook Exchange project, printmaking workshop... and Art FAIRe!
