Swindon College Press Release…
Visual Journey: A selection of sketchbooks from Swindon College degree students.
A group of 2nd and 3rd year degree art students have today (12th March 2013) embarked on a one-day live project in conjunction with Rabley Drawling Centre facilitated by Meryl Ainslie. They will be selecting, curating and exhibiting an exclusive collection of sketchbooks which take the viewers on a visual journey. This will provide a unique insight into artists’ thoughts, experiments and the many varied ways sketchbooks can be used. The exhibition hopes to ‘challenge all previous conceptions
of contemporary sketchbook work’.
‘Thanks for a fascinating day at Rabley. Some useful insights and I appreciated the down to earth business sense showing the reality of the art world.” Jeff Pigott Y3 SC FA
“Thank you for a brilliant and productive day. I found it extremely insightful in knowing how to select, curate, market, network exhibitions. I never realised how much went into making an exhibition successful. I found the day beneficial in knowing what to expect when leaving art school, and knowing how to approach galleries.” Thank you again for sharing your knowledge with us, it was a fun day, I really enjoyed listening to you.” Jemma Gunning Y3
“This looks fantastic! Thank you again for a very educational day :)” Kerry Gault Y2
“Thank you for a very interesting and eye opening workshop yesterday. You mentioned that if we wanted to volunteer to help in the future with shows or with the SKETCH 2013 exhibition, we should email you back and let you know. I would definitely relish the opportunity to volunteer with you in the future” Helen Cole Y2
