Nowhere are The Artists of Morley better showcased than across the many end-of-year shows on display across the college’s three centres.
From fashion to fine art, photography to millinery, interior design to sculpture, this year’s shows serve as a reminder that great artistry inspires us all.
Beyond the Palette: 9 to 29 June
The final exhibition of this year’s Advanced Painting course, taught by Steve Wright.
A lively and varied exhibition of contemporary paintings that extend beyond the confines of technique and genre, into personal and playful responses to a wide range of subjects and ideas.
Adorn: 9 June to 4 July
Featuring the work of our Level 2 jewellery certificate students in preparation for running a professional jewellery business.
Working in the studios at our Waterloo Centre, the goldsmiths have developed their skills and personal styles, learning new techniques and gaining confidence in their own artistry. This show features examples of unique work made during the year.
The De Beers Group Scholarship Show: 9 June to 4 July
Featuring the work of our Intermediate Level De Beers Group scholars Angela Benjamin and Zita Abila who have been generously funded by the De Beers Group to develop their jewellery skills and their business.
Zsuszi Roboz show: 13 July
This exhibition features the work of the 2022 to 23 recipients of the Zsuzsi Roboz Scholarship, Lauren Goldie and Eimhin Moran.
Lauren’s work explores the 22,000 littered man-made objects orbiting outer space. The interim exhibit for the 2022 to 23 Zsuzsi Roboz Residency examines their discarded nature, the danger they pose when falling from the sky and the monuments they create when they land.
For the 2022 to 23 ZR Scholarship, Eimhin explores the ‘roundrect’ as a symbol of the sterility and standardisation of our physical and digital landscapes. Using the ‘roundrect’ as background motif to the work, Eimhin questions whether the structure of our built environments can influence our worldview and behaviour.
Down 2 Earth, HND Ceramics Diploma exhibition: 20 to 24 June
At Morley, we encourage diversity. We offer a pathway which contrasts with larger universities, offering small class sizes and benefitting from excellent tutor to student ratios with ample workshop facilities and space to develop creativity.
While staffing the exhibition our graduates will be happy to discuss their ceramics, share their HND experiences and creative career paths.
