Leeds College of Art is showcasing the work of graduating students in an innovative end of year exhibition entitled Extra-ordinary; held at both of the College’s Blenheim Walk and Vernon Street sites, from Saturday 10 to Thursday 15 June.
The College’s buildings will be transformed into large exhibition spaces where visitors can view the latest creative talent from across the College; everything from sculpture, paintings, prints, textiles, design, animation, illustration, photography, advertising and fashion.
‘The Art Market’ will be open for visitors to purchase prints and artwork from students who will be selling their work at the Blenheim Walk site for the duration of the exhibition.
This is a significant year for Leeds College of Art. Building works have recently commenced on a new £22 million state-of-the-art expansion, due to be completed by summer 2018, and after being granted Taught Degree Awarding Powers, the College now awaits confirmation of its place as the first specialist arts university in the North.
Extra-ordinary is a free exhibition, open to all, and no booking is required. For further information and opening times visit the College website www.leeds-art.ac.uk/extra-ordinary
