The exhibition comprises of work from the BTEC extended Dip in Art and Design Practice coordinated by Helen McFarland as well as photographs produced by the night class in Darkroom photography coordinated by Dermot Harper.
The exhibition was opened by Claire Fiddaman, Creative Arts head of school in SWC.
Mrs Fiddaman admired the creativity of the students and encouraged them to keep on making artwork and never give up. She went on to say how difficult it is for young people to put their work out in the public domain, she also said it was the case for students who attended night classes. She encouraged the students by saying the quality of the work really impressed her.
Helen McFarland also thanked people who were involved in planning the exhibition such as Bernie Kirrane, Arts officer Fermanagh & Omagh District Council, along with second year students.
She praised the students for producing “thought provoking and stimulating work”
“Thank you, students, it is a privilege to watch you develop your confidence and be part of your creative journey” she said.
The exhibition was attended by a mixture of friends, family and art lovers. The Future Creatives exhibition is open to the public on the first floor of the Strule Arts centre and continues until Sat 27th May 2023.
