Work by fine art students collected for exhibition.
WHAT have the students on the master of fine arts course at Northumbria University been getting up to? There's a chance to find out this week at VANE, the art gallery on the first floor of Commercial Union House on Newcastle's Pilgrim Street.
The exhibition features the work of artists on the BXNU master of fine art programme, who all have studios at BALTIC 39 on High Bridge, Newcastle.
It is called Strange Pursuit and comprises individual bodies of work that, brought together in one exhibition and under one title, might be seen to have various connections.
The artists include Declan Ackroyd, Samuel Barry, Rob Bowman, Aloe Corry, Juliet Fleming, Simone Gandhi, Joanna Georghadjis and Tracy Himsworth. Also represented are Sian Hutchings, Tommy Keenan, Ciara Lenihan, Samantha Lourens, Euan Lynn, Kitty McMurray, Alexander Nicholas, Natalie Reid and Theo Scott.
The exhibition is open to the public from today until Saturday, noon to 5pm, and admission is free.
The next exhibition at VANE opens on January 19 and brings together recent sculptural work by Ralph Darbyshire, Richard Hollinshead and Kenneth Ross.
It is called The Vagaries and Misconceptions of the Modern Man and will run until February 24.
"Figurative in the broadest sense," explain the VANE people, "these sculptural works collectively engage with difficult material, whether brashly explicit or operating as a disquieting undercurrent, and whether concerned with political unrest, sexuality, violence or inter-generational dispute."
VANE, which is supported by Arts Council England, was founded in 1997 by gallery directors Paul Stone and Christopher Yeats.
The gallery is open Wednesday to Saturday, 12-5pm. Details: www.vane.org.uk
