Business centre turns into art gallery

Have your say

A COMPLEX of business units was turned into an art gallery in order to exhibit the work of Havant students.

Langstone Technology Park provided the space, while the work was all down to final-year art students from Havant College.

It is the second time the park – a former IBM building – has played host to the students.

A preview event also featured an awards ceremony for those students that shone.

Chris Cook, assistant curriculum director at Havant College said: ‘The art exhibition acts as a fitting tribute to all the hard work by all of our second year students at the culmination of their courses, and our foundation pre-degree cohort.

‘We were pleased to have such an excellent range of work on show from our leavers this year.

‘The exhibition showcased BTEC National Diploma, BTEC Pre-Degree Foundation, International Baccalaureate and A-level programmes.

‘Prizewinning students are now able to showcase their work as part of a year-long exhibition at the park, which gives a professional environment for the work.’

Gary Medlow, managing director of Fasset, which runs the park, added: ‘LTP was delighted once again to work with Havant College and offer students the opportunity to display their artistic talent in a real life exhibition.

‘Once again, the standard was exceptionally high and they should all be really proud of their achievements.

‘We wish the students all the best for whatever they chose next.’
