The degree show of the 2013 cohort of MA Fine Art students opens to the public next week at The Civic, Barnsley, bringing together work created during three years of international collaboration. From England, the Far East, Mauritius, Oman, Scotland, Spain and the USA, the artists are coming together for the first time in the real world to exhibit in South Yorkshire.
In media including painting, three-dimensional painting, drawing, print-making, sculpture and photography, the work offers exciting and innovative perspectives that engage with the contemporary art world. The show continues until 25 June and is open from Tuesday to Saturday from 10.00 to 18.00. Admission is free. OCA’s postgraduate fine art programme is Europe’s first online MA Fine Art.
