Joint exhibition showcases UCOL creativity
Forty one UCOL students will exhibit their creations in wood, moving images, still photographs and interactive displays at this year’s graduate show.
UCOL 11: Fine Furniture and Applied Visual Imaging is a combined exhibition at Te Manawa showcasing the talents of students of the Diploma in Furniture Design and Making, the Bachelor of Applied Imaging (BAVI) and the Diploma in Photographic Imaging programmes.
It is the second time the creative programmes have shared exhibition space. BAVI Lecturer and show organiser Anna Kernohan says the graduate exhibition gives the students a chance to display their work in a realistic gallery environment, “with all the preparations and pressures that go with it.”
The exhibition will open with an invitation only event at the MacDiarmid Gallery at Te Manawa on Friday 18 November. It is open to the public on Saturday 19 November and will feature artist talks from 2.00pm.
Amy McPhie is one of 31 BAVI students taking part in the exhibition. During her final year, Amy has undertaken a complete re-branding exercise for a local hairdressing salon. Business cards, packaging and even the interior design of the premises have had the Amy touch. She has designed ten elements for her clients. “I wanted to reinforce a single, smooth theme that was consistent throughout the business,” she says.
Diploma in Photographic Imaging graduate Iain Scott will share his discoveries in the area of corporate photography. In an interactive flash presentation, Iain explores a new and contemporary slant on creating images for business by taking a photojournalistic approach.
Seven Diploma in Furniture Design and Making students have been selected to show off their diverse range of wood-crafted pieces, ranging from cabinets and chairs, to a foosball table.
