Bedford College art students exhibit at the Harpur Centre

Bedford College degree show 2019

A pop up gallery will be at the Harpur Centre from Saturday 8 June, showcasing the exceptional work of Bedford College degree-level graphic design students.

From Saturday 8 – 14 June, a prime unit within the Harpur Centre will host work by the BA Graphic Design Course students. In July, a combined show by the Fashion, Textiles for Fashion and Photography BA courses will be exhibitied.

The pop up gallery will be open every day from 10 am – 4.30 pm and the theme is being ‘ahead of the field’.

“The quality of work produced by our students sees them competing with and indeed beating universities across the country in a variety of competitions year upon year,” said  Alan Parsons, head of art & design.

“Here in Bedford we offer top quality art and design degrees, without the cost of going away to university, within an educational environment which is recognised by industry as one of the best.”

Samantha Laycock, Harpur Centre Manager said, “We are excited to work in partnership with our neighbouring college and exhibit their local talent for our visitors’ enjoyment.”

*Meanwhile work from various other cohorts and courses at the college will be unveiled at a series of exhibitions being held at the riverside South Bank Arts Centre at Bedford College running until July 5th. Entrance via Cauldwell Street and visitors must report to campus main reception on the ground floor of the Tower Block. Full details
