Barnsley College Art and Design students are showcasing their ‘Plot to Print’ exhibition at the Cooper Gallery until Saturday 4 May.

This exhibition is a collection of print-based works produced by Level 3 Art and Design students in response to their research into the centenary year of The Land Facilities Act, 1919, as well as The Allotments Act, 1922, farming, agriculture and growing produce. The collection of work features different print techniques including lino cut, wood cut, collograph, etching, intaglio and mono print-based works.

The College’s Principal, Yiannis Koursis, and Vice Principal of Curriculum, Liz Leek, were invited along to judge the students’ work and award certificates for the best in print. They were extremely impressed by all of the students’ work but narrowed it down to four best in print winners: Danya Bilto (17), Luke Frostick (17), Louisa Clarke (17) and Niall Monks (16). The students were presented with a certificate and art supplies to encourage their developing artistic skills.

Liz Leek said: “Print is the medium that brought art to all of us and meant that we could have artwork in our houses. The examples the students have created are so brilliant in the variety of colour, texture and perspective. I am extremely proud of the work they have produced and I am so glad to have been asked to come and judge it.”

Come along to the Cooper Gallery to view the ‘Plot to Print’ collection of artwork between 10.00am and 4.00pm from Monday to Saturday until Saturday 4 May.
