News and Events - Bucks New University gears up art and design show

Wednesday 15 April 2015

The show features a range of work from undergraduate and postgraduate students on the University's art and design, creative and furniture courses at its campus in Queen Alexandra Road, High Wycombe. This year's show will also for the first time make use of exhibition space in the University's newly-refurbished South Wing.

Andreas Fabian, co-curator for the show, said: "This should be another great show and we are looking forward to welcoming as many people as possible over the four days.

"Our talented students are working hard on the pieces and we would like plenty of members of the public to visit and see the eye-catching fruits of their labour."

The show is part of Bucks Open Studios, where over 500 artists and makers, in over 200 different venues across Buckinghamshire, open their studios and run exhibitions and events for the public to visit.

Textiles and Surface Design students will also be showing work at New Designers Part 1 from 24-27 June; Premiere Vision Designs in Paris from 15-17 September; and also TENT London for London Design Week from 24-27 September.

Advertising Creative students will be exhibiting their work at D&AD New Blood from 30 June - 2 July. The Furniture courses will be at New Designers Part 2 which runs from 1-4 July.

In previous years, furniture work displayed has included a crafted traditional cabinet made from yew and maple; contemporary-style shelf unit made of a glue-less construction method; and a jewellery box made from brown oak and sycamore.

The show is supported by the National School of Furniture, a partnership between Bucks New University and City of Oxford College. Leading power tool manufacturer Makita UK also presents the Makita Award for Excellence of Design combined with Excellence of Craft to a winner and runner-up studying Furniture courses.
