A selection of images from this years Foundation in Art & Design show on at Tregye this week.
The show is now OPEN. A few words of introduction by our team leader, Mark Dunford –
“Welcome to our exhibition.
This is the thirteenth year we have used this space to showcase the creativity of our Art & Design students at Truro College. Our exhibition presents a diverse range of ideas, materials, techniques and approaches. Creativity is part of our daily lives; it enriches and stimulates us.
Whether we are makers or consumers, we value and consider the innovative decisions made and shared by designers, artists and craftspeople.
Creativity is inherent but it requires courage to pursue and strength to recognise that imagination is everything.
The UK creative industries includes all arts, crafts, galleries and museums, advertising and marketing, film, TV and radio. Annually they contribute £92bn. to the UK economy.*
Baker’s Dozen is a testament to the ingenuity of the students and staff at Truro College, so please enjoy the work of the next generation of artists and designers as they provide air and dimension to their ideas, shaping our future with their creativity.

A new show by former Truro College fine art students Biba Cole and Laurie Cole is on display in at Space in Bristol from 21 August. Here`s what to expect –
“Poetry, and the process of writing is vital to both artist’s individual practice. Biba uses the act of writing poetry as a form of sketching; a preliminary observation on which every visual artwork she creates is based. She progresses from written language using physical experimentation, whether it is in movement, costume, sound, or painting. Laurie creates fragmented narratives derived from everyday surroundings.
Similar to that of free verse, she works instinctively to what she feels is right and wrong. By illuminating the smallest of moments she creates environments that play and explore the human figure and written words. This exhibition then showcases the process between writing, development, and visual arts.
Much like a game of consequences, each artist writes poems for the other to respond to. The viewer is lead around the exhibition with an accompanying zine, featuring selected poems and developmental artwork.”
