MA Fine Art graduates’ class of 2017 exhibition showcase at The Civic

Europe’s first distance learning MA Fine Art graduates’ exhibition showcasing at The Civic

Europe’s first online MA Fine Art annual degree show is taking place at The Civic this June.  The ten artists, collectively exhibiting as We Are Connected, come from across the globe. This exhibition will showcase the works the distance learning students have created over the last three years, in mediums including painting and three-dimensional painting, drawing, print-making, sculpture and photography.

2017 exhibitors include: Rob Brisco, Tanya Ahmed, Monika Brueckner, Alison South, Ines Gonzalez Cordero, Maire Keogh, Mwamba Mulangala, Emma Delpech, Mathew Aldred and Susan Miller.

The postgraduate programme was launched in 2010 by Barnsley-based education charity The Open College of the Arts.  After three years of studying and creating as members of an international virtual community, the students are coming together to show their work in the real world. They have studied for their Masters degree on a part-time basis through online seminars, virtual tutorials and lectures.

“The students graduating from the Open College of the Arts’ MA in Fine Art are a highly motivated international group of professional artists making work that is exciting, innovative and engages with the contemporary art world. Their exhibition, The Eleven, brings together three years of dedicated study and collaboration.” Caroline Wright, MA Fine Art course leader, OCA

We Are Connected exhibits at The Civic from at Thursday 15 June to Saturday 24 June, 10am - 5pm (closed Sunday). Admission is free.
