ART collectors and critics will descend on the University of Chichester this month to see the first works of student artists graduating this summer.

The exhibition in the artOne building at the university’s Bishop Otter Campus until May 20 will feature the work of 37 different artists across a range of media including sculpture and painting.

Head of fine art Steve McDade said: ‘Our students are given the opportunity to develop their creativity, and the freedom to find their personal voice.

‘During their time here, they will have developed a level of consistency in their work that demonstrates their professionalism.’

All works will be on sale and students will hope for a repeat of last year’s show which launched the careers of Katie Martin, now the Cass Sculpture Foundation co-ordinator at Goodwood Sculpture Park and Sarah Ridley, who received a commission from Chichester District Council.

The show opens from 11am until 7pm until Friday, and until 6pm over the weekend.
