Art and Design Students Launch Innovative ‘About Town’ Online Exhibition

Art and Design Students Launch Innovative ‘About Town’ Online ExhibitionArt and Design (UAL) Level 2 and Level 1 students at Blackburn College have launched an innovative online exhibition named About Town. 

About Town displays the learners’ artwork in a unique way through digital interaction and includes a Movie Studio, Level 2 Photography, Level 2 Paintings and Level 1 Paintings. 

The virtual exhibition is presented by the College in partnership with The Bureau Centre for the Arts. 

Level 1 Artist Marley Dagger, 16 from Blackburn, created the artwork for the exhibition poster. He said: “My painting was a recreation of a piece by artist Liam Spencer – I really enjoyed the front-facing simplicity of this piece as well as the buried detail within it. 

“It was fun to be involved in an online exhibition because, even though it’s completely different to a normal art exhibition, it was cool to make our real artwork digital; it’s also exciting that people outside of the College will get to see my work. 

About Town was launched on Monday 8th March 2021 and will run until Friday 26th March 2021. You can view it by visiting
