Proposals DUE 20 April for exhibiting at Watt Space during July – December 2012

Watt Space offers such an amazing opportunity for the students of UON to experience gallery exhibiting without the pressures of a commercial gallery. It also gives you the chance to see how your work looks outside the studio and to reflect on what you’re doing and where you’re going with it.

Opening Night 15 March

Thanks to all the volunteers who helped out on opening night, it helped make the night go so smoothly and we can’t express just how much we appreciate you being there. The next opening night is on 5 April and we would love you to see you there again. 

The 5 current exhibitions include sculpture, photomedia, traditional printmaking and painting. It is a diverse range of works and definitely worth getting along to Watt Space to see them for yourself, you have until Sunday 1 April.
