Opening Night Event – Thursday 22 November from 6pm
Exhibition Dates 21 November – 2 December
Please join us for the exhibition opening night launch for Fine Art Honours Grad Show. This exhibition showcases the work of three Honours students Gael Connop, Claire Kemp and John Price.
Honours year is a postgraduate course for students who have demonstrated a level of excellence in their Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and have elected to undertake further study to obtain an Honours degree. The Honours degree offers students the opportunity to further develop their specific areas of interest in both theory and practice.


Brought to you buy Festival X, Watt Space is currently exhibiting the works of twenty-six extremely talented students graduating from the Bachelor of Fine Art degree at the University of Newcastle.
The exhibited works reflect the students’ accomplishments in a broad range of media, including print, paper, fibres-textiles, sculpture, drawing, painting, photography and ceramics. The diversity of individual art practice is expressed through distinct conceptual concerns, filtered through materials and process.
Come along and check out these beautiful works.
