Students take up exhibition space

A group of Tresham students will take their art work to the high street when they put on  a free exhibition under the name of their new collective, Studio 202.

Students from the Foundation Degree in Fine Art will take up space in the unoccupied buildings in Kettering’s Market Place from April 28 to May 4 between 10am and 4pm. Kettering Borough Council are loaning the collective the building to house the exhibition.

Studio 202 will showcase a diverse collection of contemporary works, in a wide range of media, with different perspectives and priorities.

This is not the first time that Tresham students who are studying this course, run in partnership with the University of Northampton, have taken their artwork to the high street. Last year, students on the same course held an exhibition in an unoccupied shop on the Kettering high street to great acclaim.

Holly Daniels who is also a part of Studio 202 said: “This is an amazing opportunity for us to get our work out there and seen by a wide audience.”

Graham Keddie, lecturer for the course said: “This exhibition is one part of the professional practice development that students engage with. It enables them to step into the professional career they have researched and chosen during the course and in preparation for earning a living when they graduate.
