The MA in the Arts Final Show 2011 will take place at The University of Northampton's School of The Arts on Avenue Campus from Monday 19 - Saturday 24 September. The exhibition will celebrate the work of postgraduate students across a range of richly diverse arts disciplines including painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture and installation.
Dr Craig Staff, Senior Lecturer in the Arts, School of The Arts, The University of Northampton, stated:
For the students, the final exhibition represents the culmination of their studies on the MA Fine Art programme.
It also marks the starting point in terms of embarking on their careers as practicing artists.Dr Craig Staff
For the first time, MA Fine Art students of The University of Northampton who are studying through the Cyprus College of Art and Cornaro Institute, Larnaca, will be holding an exhibition of their work. This will be opened by the British High Commissioner to Cyprus Matthew Kidd and The University of Northampton's Vice Chancellor Professor Nick Petford at the Cornaro Institute from Friday 16 September, running until Sunday 18 September.
The exhibition of paintings, sculpture and art installations is the culmination of a year's work by the 12 students, and seven year's collaboration between The University of Northampton and the Cyprus College of Art. The students use the facilities of the Cyprus College of Art in Paphos and the Cornaro Institute in Larnaca during their studies, as well as being supported by academics from The University of Northampton.
We are proud to be hosting this show. This course is raising the standards of art education in Cyprus, and helping to make our island a major art centre in the region.Michael Paraskos, Director of the Cyprus College of Art
