At Last! The CGAA Gallery Is Go!


Ages back, we applied to the UCA Creative Fund on your behalf for some additional dosh to purchase some picture frames and some lighting so we might at last create a course-centric gallery space in the lower 4th corridor.  It's been a long time coming, but today we completed the installation of our twelve new frames* and so transformed an otherwise unloved and unlovely expanse of wall into a glittering showcase of student work.  Ta da!






The twelve lockable frames make it easy for us to refresh the corridor exhibition when we fancy a change of scenery.  First time out, I wanted to highlight character design as an integral aspect of the course and promote your unsung strengths as illustrators; next time, who knows - a cavalcade of digitally painted landscapes? A celebration of life-drawing? An anthology of Summer speed paints? (I did rather rashly promise Ernesta a theme on mutant typewriters, but this might prove a little too niche - even for CG Arts & Animation!).  The point is, we now have a space by which to better define ourselves in the eyes and estimation of others and we should use the gallery to dynamic effect.  All ideas for future exhibitions are welcome!


*Actually, when I say 'we', I mean 'Alan', who somehow attached the frames to the walls single-handedly without swearing even a little bit!

  1. Next exhibition - 12 individual portraits of me. It'd be the artiest thing ever I promise.
