Student Exhibition - Works on Paper - Summer 2018

Students from Shetland College UHI’s NC Art and Design course have been given the opportunity to exhibit in the Grand Hotel’s Breakfast Room over the summer of 2018. A small exhibition, Works on Paper is an intimate taster of work produced by students over the last academic year. Printmaking, Painting, Photography and Origami have all been employed in this small-scale exhibition demonstrating both the design and fine art elements of the NC course. Students are encouraged to create work that expresses their own personality, and this is apparent from the breadth of subject matter on display.
The following works will be on display and, if you would like to purchase an example, we have also shown the prices they are asking for each item.
We hope you enjoy the exhibition
