ARTISTS AND ORGANISATIONS ARE GETTING CREATIVE ABOUT HOW TO BRING YOU GREAT ART IN THIS TIME OF SOCIAL DISTANCING. THIS INCLUDES THE STUDENTS AND TEACHERS OF WIRRAL MET COLLEGE, WHO THIS YEAR HAVE ADAPTED THEIR DEGREE SHOW FOR ONLINE EXHIBITION.
Diverse Directions (online!) is the 25th annual BA (Hons) Fine Art Exhibition, which was due to be hosted at the Williamson. However with the gallery closed due to Covid-19 the work of this degree show is being displayed digitally.
This exhibition explores themes such as nature, landscape, social values, identity, technology and human behaviour, alongside visual and poetic responses to the world around us.
The show is a culmination of three, sometimes six, years of study. Diverse Directions celebrates the effort of students, their families and friends that have supported them through the demands of undergraduate study.
Vincent Lavell is BA (Hons) Fine Art Course Leader at Wirral Met. He says: “the graduating students featured in Diverse Directions have responded to current restrictions with flair and imagination. By continuing to work online during this period, they have demonstrated true professionalism and determination. We hope that these qualities will sustain them in their future careers.”
