THE win­ners of Lough­bor­ough Uni­ver­sity’s 2018 Arts De­gree Show have been an­nounced – and there’s still time to check out their work and the wide range of art on dis­play.

The ex­hi­bi­tion, hosted by the School of the Arts, English and Drama, is open to the pub­lic un­til Sun­day, June 17, ev­ery day from 10am-5pm at the Ed­ward Barns­ley Build­ing, Lough­bor­ough Uni­ver­sity.

It fea­tures an eclec­tic range of paint­ings and il­lus­tra­tions, tex­tile de­sign, fash­ion gar­ments, sculp­ture, pho­to­graphs, in­stal­la­tions, short films, an­i­ma­tions, graphic de­sign and video game demon­stra­tions.

The school awards were pre­sented at a pri­vate view­ing on Fri­day, June 8. They recog­nise stu­dent ex­cel­lence and en­deav­our in their cho­sen fields, with re­wards rang­ing from cash prizes to cre­ative re­source. The win­ners are as fol­lows: • Le­ices­ter Print­mak­ers Award – Re­becca Wy­mark and Ch­löe Web­ster

• Print­mak­ers Coun­cil Award – Emily Arnold

• Pot­clays Ce­ramic Prize – Louisa Daniel

• En­ter­prise and In­no­va­tion awards - Re­becca Wy­mant, Dante At­tuoni and Imo­gen Lowe.

Re­becca Wy­mark and Jodie Cowler were also an­nounced as the win­ners of the ac­claimed Ed­ward Sharp Fund. They were se­lected for the ac­co­lade by a panel led by Pro­fes­sor Ali­son Yar­ring­ton, Dean of the School of the Arts, English and Drama.

Their work will be pur­chased to be­come part of the uni­ver­sity’s col­lec­tion of art, to be dis­played on cam­pus.

Pro­fes­sor Ali­son Yar­ring­ton said: “Re­becca Wy­mark takes her in­spi­ra­tion from her im­me­di­ate en­vi­ron­ment, util­is­ing ma­te­ri­als and cast­ing spa­ces en­coun­tered in the home and the stu­dio. She makes del­i­cate prints from domestic fab­rics and cre­ates handmade pa­per sculp­tures by cast­ing domestic fur­ni­ture.

“Jodie Cowler deals with is­sues of re­li­gion, be­lief and mor­tal­ity in con­tem­po­rary so­ci­ety with her in­stal­la­tion of seven brightly coloured paint­ings, which she refers to as ‘a de­serted room of wor­ship’.”
