Buckinghamshire New University is gearing up for our annual Art & Design Summer Show from 14-15 June and 17-19 June.

The Show will feature work from third-year students studying a range of creative courses and organisers say it is ‘a great opportunity to see the calibre of work our students produce and to meet the next generation of talent’.
Art and Design Show body Courses exhibiting include Creative Advertising; Graphic Design; Illustration; Interior and Spatial Design, as well as Fashion Design, Product Design, and Textile Design.

Sri-Kartini Leet, Head of School - Art, Design and Performance at the University, said: “We would love as many members of the public as possible to join us to celebrate the creativity, award-winning talent, innovation and individuality of our final-year Art & Design students by visiting this free exhibition.

“It is a fantastic chance to see what we do and see the high quality of work students produce. We are excited to showcase all of the great work our students have created.”

BA (Hons) Fashion Design student Beth Jefferys is exhibiting a range of work inspired by famous architect Antoni Gaudí, including a colourful shirt/dress, dungaree dress, and boiler suit.

“I have been posting teasers of my work on Instagram and I am excited to show off the full collection at this year’s Show,” she said. “It is a great chance to display the work I am most proud of.”

The Show is open from 10am-2pm and 5pm-7pm on Friday 14 June; from 10am -4pm on Saturday 15 June; and from 10am-2pm and 5pm-7pm on Monday 17 June; Tuesday 18 June; and Wednesday 19 June.
