Friday May 30th to Thursday June 5th 2014

This year saw the return of Belfast Metropolitan College HND Fine Art students to the Engine Room Town Gallery for their end of year exhibition. The show featured work in a range of media including painting, printmaking, ceramics and sculpture by both graduating and returning students.

A reception was held on the evening of May 30th to open the exhibition and was well attended, along with a late opening on the final day, Thursday June 5th, again with a good turnout including the Late Night Art bus tour calling at the venue.

The management, teaching staff and students at Belfast Met wish to express their thanks to the Engine Room Gallery for hosting the end of year show for a second time, giving students the opportunity to exhibit their work in one of the city's prime contemporary art spaces. It provides an excellent showcase for the HND course, a level 5 program that allows students to work in a variety of media such as Painting, Printmaking, Ceramics, Sculpture, Installation Art and Digital and Video Art combined with units that teach the application of these as practicing artists such as Fine Art Professional Practice and Organisation of Exhibitions. Partnerships such as this are an invaluable aspect of the relationship between the College and commercial Fine Art practice.
