UCS art student showcased at Prettys 2016 summer exhibition

We have unveiled our 10th exhibition; “Artist rooms” exclusively featuring work from students of University Campus Suffolk (UCS), at a launch event on Thursday 14th July.

Our staff welcomed the Mayor of Ipswich; Cllr Roger Fern and UCS students to their Ipswich headquarters to celebrate the firm’s ongoing collaboration with the emerging artists.

Artist Rooms’ curator Sara Hayes, MA Arts Practice student at UCS commented, “I have really enjoyed producing this exhibition at Prettys’ office. As  curator, I decided to choose work that appealed to me as well as those who would see the art pieces every day.  We have a fantastic collection of art, reflecting the skills and talent of the students at UCS which I hope will be very warmly received.”

The exhibition is made up of original art work created by students and includes drawings, photographs, oil paintings and sculptures. The entire collection will be housed at our Ipswich office on Elm Street in the meeting rooms, offices and communal spaces.

Prettys' CEO Ian Carr commented, “We are thrilled to be celebrating our collaboration with UCS and always look forward to seeing the fresh and incredible talent that is demonstrated through the students’ work. We are always taken back by the passion and skill that goes into every piece and are delighted to give these artists the opportunity to showcase their work in a way it deserves.”

For the first time, the preview exhibition featured performance pieces as well as an interactive element with guests invited to contribute to a body of work being created by painter and conceptual artist Amy Drayson.

Amy invited visitors to bring an item of sentimental value and tell her a story connected with it. She will then illustrated the story and upload all the results to a dedicated Instagram account.

This year, staff at Prettys voted for Adam Riches’ ‘Self-Portrait’ to win the best in show prize. The show has been well received in the past with 7 pieces being sold from the last exhibition.

The art work will be on display at Prettys office at 25 Elm Street, Ipswich throughout the summer and is available to view by prior appointment.
