The Falmouth Illustration 2014 degree show opened to the public this morning with the private View kicking off at 6pm tonight. Students have done a great job of hanging an exceptional show. The work being exhibited has been produced during their final year of study and ranges across all fields of the subject, including editorial, advertising, publishing, fashion, information and authorial illustration.The show comes soon after our highly successful professional practice study trips to locations that include New York, London, Bologna and San Fransisco. This year has been marked by significant student successes including two AOI new talent award winners Katie Ponder & David Doran, YCN student award winner Bridie Cheeseman, Macmillan children’s book prize Highly Commended – Briony May Smith, The Lemniscaat Illustration Award 2014 winner Freya Hartas. Not to mention the successes this year of our alumni: Rebecca Cobb – short listed for the Kate Greenaway 2014 short list, Anne Marie Jones – V&A Cover Illustration Award 2014 and AOI Children’s Book Award 2014 Winner: Will Grill.
Both our’Fold’ and ‘B Side’ collectives have stands at the show as does our current quotes and Sayings Volume 9. The show will be open to the Public from 10am until 5 each day until Tuesday 17th June. Please come along if you’re in the area.
