This is the fourth year that OVADA has hosted the end of year show for the Warehouse Art School Continuing Practice Course.

It has been another busy year! A trip to Manchester with a behind-the-scenes tour of The Whitworth Art Gallery got the year off to a flying start. A varied programme of Artists Talks put the working methods of practicing artists into focus, as well as giving insight and inspiration. A recent trip to Madrid was another highlight; the weather and food as wonderful as the Museums and galleries.

Vaguity a recent show at OVADA led by student Roger Pugh was a collaboration between all the members in the group. All the group had a hand in all the projects, which ranged from performance and video to painting and sculpture.

In ‘A New Kind of Fun’ this year-group will bring together the experiences, insights and skills that they have gained from the set projects on the Course. Their work for this show is self-directed with critique and support given by peers and tutors. They have followed their own interests while also responding to the size and nature of OVADA’s Warehouse.

The work on show is diverse both in process and outcome, and includes a range of subject matter and materials.
