Each June final year BA (Hons) Fine Art students mount an exhibition of their work on campus at IT Sligo to demonstrate the breadth of their capability, knowledge and achievement. This year’s graduates are greatly looking forward to the opportunity of presenting selected elements of their final year shows in The Dock’s beautifully restored 19th century building and its dedicated gallery spaces.
The fine art graduates specialise in painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, photography, film and mixed media installation. The exhibition presents an eclectic mix of formal and conceptual concerns expressed through a wide range of art practices. Though diverse in its parts the exhibition coheres on a level of artistic focus and ambition and provides a wonderful opportunity to view and engage with the work of students just emerging into a vibrant Irish art scene.
