First Impressions 2014

View Art Gallery presents a student show

First Impressions 2014 September 4th to 21st, 2014

View Art Gallery 159-161 Hotwells Road Bristol BS8 4RY United Kingdom for enquiries: +44 (0)5603 116753

First Impressions 2014 is the third of our annual student exhibition at View Art Gallery. Each year we invite students from schools and colleges to submit work to our panel of judges. The criteria for selection is to reflect the values we have as a commerical gallery; the art aims to be of good technical quality and have aesthetic appeal, but above all it has high impact, either in its narrative or application. This catalogue showcases the shortlist of work selected by the judging panel and the work that will be exhibited during the show. The winner of the 2014 prize will be announced at the private view on Thursday September 4th.

Memory Archive stop motion animation

Memory Archive seeks to collect and preserve memories. Each chapter of Memory Archive forms a portrait of the Narrator, sharing with the viewers aspects of their history which are emphasised by the imagery of the stop motion animation. However, the Narrators hands are also seen performing tasks which have an association with the people they have become.

Thank you to all the students, teachers, parents, curators and administrators for supporting this special exhibition. I am continually impressed by the artistic talent in the South West region. I hope that View Art Gallery can help provide students with an insight into the workings of a commercial gallery and support them in taking their first step on the journey to becoming a professional artist.
