The Art Department is excited to welcome back Amy Truscott to exhibit her fabulous artwork in the BonBernard Gallery.

Amy left Dean Close in 2013 and built on her Art A-level with a Foundation Diploma in Art at Stroud College and an invitation to exhibit at the Biannual Fresh Air Sculpture Show at Quenington, where she was awarded the Curator’s Award. She then completed her BA in Fine Art Sculpture at Edinburgh University’s College of Art. As a result of her final degree show, she was nominated as one of the Royal Scottish Academy’s New Young Contemporaries, exhibiting there in April 2019. In addition, she was invited to take part in the inaugural Orbit Art show of selected art graduates around the UK in OXO Tower’s Bargehouse in August 2018 as well as being invited to exhibit within Edinburgh Art Fair, 2018. Amy’s next step is to complete a 2-year Masters’ programme in glass at Edinburgh College of Art, starting in September 2019.

Amy says, “My practice is interactive, fun and escapist, my work aims to provide a route to a transient and indulgent world which has the illusion of being fragile. If people leave feeling a little lighter, a little happier, having engaged with something that is aesthetically beautiful and delicate, then my work is done.”

The Private View for Amy’s show will be this Friday 6th September  5.30 -7pm and all are very welcome to attend.

This is a delightful, exuberant, joyful and imaginative exhibition which is unlike anything we have ever shown here before! Perspex, lights, foam and glitter – this exhibition has it all and is not to be missed!
