Update from MAP part one : The unit

MAP have been very busy and not had a chance to update the blog since December...so here is a retrospective update...our twitter and facebook are up to date but this has fallen on the back burner!

Higher education photography and BA (Hons) Fine Art students from Wirral Met College working together to stage an exhibition in New Brighton.
We have had a quick exhibition for the British Red Cross with a red window before Wirral Met Photography HND students moved in properly, opening up the space for the first time so that people could visit the rear space of the gallery.

The MAP unit in Marine Point New Brighton exploded with creative talent as students from Wirral Met College took over the space to showcase their work. The exhibition took place from  Monday 23rd February to Thursday 2nd April 2015.

The first two weeks of the exhibition saw the first and final year photography students presenting their work, featuring both digital and traditional darkroom photography. David Parry is currently studying in his second year on the BTEC Higher National Certificate (HNC) in photography and commented, “Darkroom photography is a strength of the college and not one all colleges can offer. I have loved seeing an image come to life from a blank page.”

The second part of the exhibition features work from BA (Hons) Fine Art students. This will run from Saturday 14th March until Wednesday 1st April 2015, displaying an eclectic mixture of styles including painting and sculpture. Final year BA (Hons) Fine Art student, Scott Rule commented, “It is a great opportunity for us as emerging artists to reach a wider audience.”

The pop up gallery is being hosted by the students themselves and provides an opportunity for the public to speak to the artists in person. The show is open daily from 11.00am to 4.00pm Monday to Saturday and 1.30pm to 4.00pm on Sundays at Unit 13 Marine Point New Brighton.
