Second-year students studying on the BA (Hons) Fine Art Painting degree course at University Centre St Helens will be showcasing their work at a special exhibition.
The popular BA2 exhibition, now it in its eighth year showcases the diverse range of work that students on the BA (Hons) Fine Art Painting degree produce by demonstrating the ability, professionalism and wealth of thematic and conceptual concerns of the exhibiting students as they reach the culmination of their second year of study.
Wayne Robinson, Programme Leader for the BA (Hons) Fine Art Painting commenting ahead of the exhibition said: "The BA2 painting exhibition continues to showcase the popularity and continued 'life' of the act of painting. This group of blossoming talents continues to engage with and progress the cause of painting and set a firm foundation for their 3rd-year studies. Thematically enriched by a broad range of contemporary concerns, this exhibition highlights the technical and theoretical concerns of the group. Although a small show, there is plenty for all to connect with and consider."
