We have the great pleasure of working with the most talented, driven and dedicated students on Fine Art and Art & Design at The University of Bolton. In a year that challenged all aspects of daily life, our finalists worked above and beyond what was expected of them. Ambitious art works were undertaken in living rooms, bedrooms, public spaces and on campus as this cohort of artists came to terms with life during a global pandemic. Working in collaboration they have produced an incredibly diverse and meaningful show, representative of their sheer determination and passion for art, producing accomplished, challenging and engaging work.
It is with great pleasure we present the works of our Fine Art students in both virtual and physical forms. Our end of degree show is a celebration of emerging talent and creativity; our finalists are ready to take on the challenges of art practice in Britain today. This is the start of their incredible journey, we thank them for making us part of it and wish them long and fruitful years of art making and thinking.
