STAFF from Bridgwater College are preparing to present their artwork in the See Level exhibition, to be held in the Arts and Media Gallery as part of this year’s Somerset Arts Week Festival.
The exhibition explores a wide range of themes, such as organising chaos or tracing improbable journeys, and seeks to challenge our perceptions of traditional art forms. The work has been created by 14 members of staff from the art, design, media and furniture departments, and includes a range of media including photography, drawing installations, stitched textiles, painting, mixed media, ceramics, film and furniture, and has taken over 1000 hours for the staff to complete.
Becky Bruton, who has produced a series of vintage patterned, screen printed furniture and embroidered textile designs said: “I have always loved the vintage aesthetic and enjoy researching different elements of pattern and design from the Victorian era.”
Darren Facey, who has produced paintings for the exhibition said: “My principal interest has been about creating different effects of light. I have tried to suggest a space that has, or will, contain human presence.”
The exhibition begins on Saturday, September 21, and is open daily, between 11am and 5pm until October 5.
