Modbury-based Brownston Gallery were so impressed by the talent of the students at the Plymouth College of Art Degree Show that they decided to do something to show their support.

For ‘one night only’, they organised a Post-degree Pop-up Show at the Gallery where 20 students were chosen from the Departments of Contemporary Craft and Fashion to showcase their work. Many were on hand to explain their exhibits to over 60 guests, including Former Vice Principle Roy Sims, Roger and Burda Gage who were involved in the development of the college in the 1980s, plus members of the art and business communities who were able to offer invaluable advice and guidance.

Gallery director Catherine Gillen said, “We were delighted to offer these talented students the opportunity to exhibit their work at our gallery.”

“It was a great showcase for Plymouth College of Art and we look forward to future collaborations with them.”

The event was organised to reward and encourage final year students from the college, giving them a chance to exhibit and sell direct to the public.

The evening was a great success and six of the students are now exhibiting at the gallery. Previous student Matt Thomas has since taken studio space down at Royal William Yard.
