Raw Potential – University of Chester Degree Show
3 -10 July 2009 at Novas CUC
Touring exhibition of work produced by Fine Art and Photography students at the University of Chester. From painting, sculpture, textiles and print-making to photography, installations and new media, around 70 students have joined forces to put together Raw Potential, an eye-catching, colourful and spectacular showcase of the striking work they have completed during their degrees.
Chester fine art and photography is all about the freedom to experiment, be individual and push boundaries. The Raw Potential degree show provides a public showcase for all of the creative energies and efforts over the past few years – the diverse and varied nature of Fine Art and Photography at Chester University. The show doubles as a chance for the students to integrate further with the community. The community has played a large part in raising funds and the profile of this event. So the show marks a high point in the academic year and community calendar.
The community links continue when the show moves to Liverpool. The Novas Contemporary Urban Centre has a strong reputation for community support and develops opportunities for individuals and groups. To exhibit at The Novas Contemporary Urban Centre will provide the next step for the student artists’ raw potential – to develop as emerging artists.
