Last week Bath College held an exhibition showcasing a wealth of talent from part-time leisure course Love2Learn students.
The work exhibited was from a wide range of disciplines including: Painting, Printmaking, Photography, Glass, Jewellery, Sculpture and many more.
The exhibition ran for four days, with a grand opening evening at which students were presented awards by The Mayor of Bath and the Deputy Principal of the College. The award categories were Fine Art, Design Crafts, 3D, 2D, Design/Photography and Student of the Year.
Jayne Davis, Deputy Principal said: “The College is very proud of all its learners including Love2Learn and the Take Part show is an excellent example of why it is important to the College to show off learner work to the wider community.
“The annual show is a clear demonstration of learners’ commitment and creativity as well as local talent. Thanks and congratulations go to all learners and staff who worked hard to put such a high quality show together.”
The calibre of the pieces was extremely high, leading to visitors purchasing much of the work displayed.
Maureen Hosier won the Student of the Year award. Stephen Handley, the course leader described why she won: “Maureen has a dedication and enthusiasm which is contagious both for tutors and fellow students. Her work always has a glimpse of humour and we never detect the hard work; so effortless is the result.
“She works with scrap metal but moreover a great student or Artist is the one who inspires others to go explore alternative or new disciplines to see or think in a different way.
“This is an Artist. She is an Artist.”
