Higher Education Art & Design Exhibition at Selby Abbey

The Art & Design Exhibition at Selby Abbey will take place from 15th-22nd June 2021, from 10am until 4pm.

The display, which will take place from Tuesday, 15th June until Tuesday, 22nd June 2021, will feature work from both Year 1 and Year 2 Higher National Certificate/Diploma (HNC/D) Art & Design students at the College.

Year 2 HND artwork will include illustrated and animated fashion photography which will be projected from above within the Abbey. Media based work will also be on display including old portable TVs investigating 80’s propaganda, as well as pieces that look at nature and the environmental effects of opening up the airways.

The show will include artwork created by Year 1 HNC students for The Escapologist UK to promote its escape rooms in Selby, Castleford, Leeds and its brand-new venue in Manchester.

The students have been working with the owner of The Escapologist to create potential new themes and games for its escape rooms through fine art, digital graphics and photography. They have also been learning how to produce marketing material, create moving idents and merchandise to help advertise The Escapologist’s bars and restaurants.
