This aspiration to excel motivates our students to work together as well-organised groups throughout their final year, arranging fundraising events such as the annual Postcard auction, sponsorship, publicity and an extremely well-attended opening preview night. Both the Undergraduate BA and Postgraduate MFA exhibitions are highly regarded events and are some of the most popular in Newcastle's exhibitions calendar.
The students take responsibility for all of the design and production of their own publicity material, producing catalogues, posters, invitations, press releases and web pages.
2017 undergraduate degree show
The work of 50 young, undergraduate artists was displayed at the culmination of their four-year BA in Fine Art.
2016 undergraduate degree show
The 2016 show was exhibited in two venues, the University's Fine Art Department, and the Great North Museum: Hancock.
What always impresses is the way that Fine Art licences individual research and expression, yet also breeds alertness to cultural shifts, contemporary issues, global concerns. This is not ivory tower art, it is stuff made in a vibrant city.
The work of our postgraduate students is on show during our Master of Fine Art degree show, which is typically held in August. You can take a look at the work on show at our recent degree shows here:
We also have an archive site for all of our past degree shows called the FineArtForum.
