Liverpool Hope University’s Fine and Applied Arts Department has grown from strength to strength over the last twenty years and is proudly housed within the Cornerstone building at Liverpool Hope University’s Creative Campus.

As a testament to the high quality of studentship and artistic ability that our undergraduate students graduate with, the University and Cornerstone Gallery have invited six previous graduates, who are now active practitioners and/or educators within their Creative Industry, to exhibit within the Cornerstone Gallery.

Graduating in Fine Art and English and a subsequent MA in Twentieth Century Literature, Paul Riley teaches Art and Creative Writing to inmates at HM Prison Liverpool.

Steve Strode graduated in Fine Art and Education and is a freelance art teacher with an Art in Education MA. He is one of four recent prize winners in Artists and Illustrators Artist of the Year 2012 and is a regular contributor to the national art press.

Charlotte Owens graduated in Fine Art and English Literature and returned to Liverpool Hope University to complete an MA by Creative Practice. She has since completed a three year technical assistant placement within the Fine & Applied Arts Department and Cornerstone Gallery.

Corrie Barclay graduated in Fine Art with Dance and was awarded the Degree Show Purchase Prize. Upon moving to Berlin she has been technical assistant to both Anselm Reyle and Douglas Henderson and P.A. to Robert Jacobson.

Becky Johnson also received the Degree Show Purchase Prize and has recently exhibited at Drop the Dumbells, a new Gallery and experimental music venues.

Jason Jones graduated in Fine Art and Psychology and has also completed the MA by Creative Practice. He has been the Manager and Curator at the Cornerstone Gallery since it began in 2004

The Long View promises to be an interesting contrast of talent, both in artistic execution and subject matter, and a rare collective insight to contemporary practice at the forefront of post-academic study.
