LMC Hosts Annual Art Exhibition
Held in the Art & Design building of the college, a range of art forms were displayed, ranging from fine art, contemporary art, video game renders and documentary video pieces, where members of the public were invited to come and sample the talent on display.
Following the Music End of Year Showcase at the end of June, Music students had also included their pieces as part of the show, which included musical pieces based on the solar system, the life of musical instruments and music composed from the sounds of a car. As part of the new Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music Production, validated by University of Central Lancashire, one of the students, Damien Whittam, had included information about his artist management business, CPTR Management, and how he went about setting up his business.
The ground floor gallery was dedicated to an exhibition titled “Home”, where the Art & Design and Photography students had created pieces centred on their depictions of what they think of as their “home”. This ranged from photos of family and pets to politically charged pieces surrounding the issues of homelessness.
The upstairs gallery included exhibits from the fine art, textiles and contemporary art elements of the Art & Design course at LMC, which included amazing oil paint canvasses, dresses and their designs and an exhibit which challenged the taboos of menstruation.
Creative Digital Media students were also showcasing their work from the Video Game Design module of their course. The games showcased the students’ ability to create fully rendered 3D environments and characters, whilst incorporating storylines. Other video game exhibits included side scrolling adventure games, taking inspiration from modern side scrollers such as Super Meat Boy, Castle Crashers and Cuphead.
Other pieces from Creative Digital Media students included documentary videos, one of which focussed on Morecambe FC footballers, Sam Lavelle and Aaron McGowan who the students conducted interviews with.
Programme Area Manager for Creative Arts, John Lambert, commented “We are extremely proud of our students and the work that they have completed over the year. This event has really showcased the artistic talent of young people in our community and we are looking forward to seeing what they produce in the future.”
Creative Digital Media tutor, Wendy Bickerstaffe, added “With a huge amount of employment opportunities coming up in the digital sector, it’s great to see our students showing what they have learnt over the year which gives them a fantastic start in this industry.”
