This year’s MA Fine Art Degree Show contains an eclectic mix of individual talents, maintaining the reputation for excellence the MA has established at Norwich School of Art and Design. Along with the BA Degree Show held every June, the MA Show offers an ideal opportunity for individual collectors and local businesses to explore and invest in the talent nurtured within one of the UK’s oldest and most established Schools of Art and Design - one of the few to remain independent. In addition to the taster show in the Norwich Gallery, each artist will exhibit work in their own studio space in the main Art School building - an exciting chance to see the work in the place it was made and meet the artists themselves.

Andrew Tyler’s large shimmering paintings deal with the distillation of beauty from chaos, “as if to make the cage a more understandable place.”

Sue Windley will exhibit series of photographs exploring the mysteries of DNA, and “Objects to be Held”, carved pebbles which emphasis the relationships between our emotional, intellectual and physical worlds.
