The work of one Kirriemuir-based artist is among that of a group of 11D&A College art students on show at the Arbroath Campus.

Gill Urquhart has a number of interesting pieces on show including an imaginatively decorated skull.

Taking place on the first floor of the Esk Building, the annual exhibition of HND contemporary art practice students opened on Friday, May 30 and runs until Tuesday, June 10.

It kicked off with a private viewing on Thursday evening and is now open to the public each week day from 9.30 a.m. until 8 p.m,. except Fridays when it closes at 6 p.m.

The exhibition includes an eclectic mix of paintings in various media including oils, watercolours and acrylics, drawings, sculptures and ceramics. There are also digital animation and photography – both digital and darkroom traditional, on show.

Allan Paris, course lecturer, said: “The exhibition reflects the broad nature of the contemporary art practice course.

“All of the students are encouraged to develop artwork around their own particular personal interests and feelings.

“This leads to a wide variety of subject matter being studied, creating a very diverse art exhibition.

“The end-of-year show is always a poignant occasion as, after spending the last few years at college, the HND students are set to move on.”
