Fine art students come Sevenfold for a special exhibition

Date 22.09.2016

The MA Fine Art students from the University of Northampton will be showing their work at a special exhibition hosted at Avenue Campus (W14, Walgrave Building) in September.

‘Sevenfold’ is named for the group of seven artists; Ruth Boddington, Elaine Elcoat, Nicola Holloway, Ruby Satchell, Elizabeth Tomos, Fatma Ummanel and Jenna Wilkinson. The exhibition showcases their progress across the programme, highlighting a variety of artistic disciplines, including print-making, sculpture, drawing, painting, and installation.

Themes from the seven artists’ practice include: the body in print, drawing in response to architecture, painting politics, the movement of material, the exploration of line and repetition, the aesthetics of drawing and the everyday routine. Whilst the works of the individual artists contrast in both medium and concept the exhibition has been curated as a collective and, as such, means the artists come together – Sevenfold.

Dr Craig Staff, MA Fine Art programme leader at the University of Northampton, commented:  “The MA Fine Art exhibition is the culmination of the students’ engagement with the course. Over the time each of the seven students have developed distinct and highly developed practices that range over and in certain instances nestle within or between media. As well as showcasing their individual artistic talents, the exhibition represents the creativity, commitment and industry they have brought to the work on view and to their studies generally.”

The show opening will take place on Thursday 22 September from 6pm to 8pm in W14, Avenue Campus. The exhibition then runs from Friday 23 September at 9pm until Wednesday 28 September at 4pm. (Please note the show is not open on Sunday).
