A Fine Exhibition Showcases Art Students Talent

This February, Fine Art students from the Creative Studios at Queen Alexandra Sixth Form College showcase their artistic talents at their own exhibition Spotlight Low Light.

 The exhibition, displayed at the Old Low Light, North Shields, showcases students work that is inspired by, and features the Old Low Light and its surrounding areas.

 Dr John O’Rourke, Programme Leader in Art and Design at Creative Studios, said: “The variety and the quality of pieces on show makes me immensely proud, there’s no doubt that we are nurturing the next generation of creative talent.

 In addition to creative experimentation, it’s also important to teach students how to develop the professional skills, which would be required to make a living through galleries or fine art commissions, and I believe that this course is doing that.  


“Every year our graduates go onto achieve great things, so I’m really excited by the potential in these students.


“I would encourage everyone to visit the exhibition and see the standard of the work on display.”


Lee Patterson, Head at Queen Alexandra Sixth Form College, said: “We are proud to continue our partnership with the Old Low Light and exhibit some of our outstanding student art work.


“It is another great example of Queen Alexandra working successfully within the local community and providing our Art and Design students with an opportunity to showcase their brilliant work.”


Spotlight Low Light is on display from February 1 – February 25, at the Old Low Light, Clifford’s Ford, North Shields Fish Quay.
