The NUA MA Degree Show 2010 opened to the public on Friday 10th September with free entry to view works from students graduating from Animation & Sound Design; Art, Design & Education; Design; Digital Arts; Drawing; Fine Art; Managing Creative Enterprise; Photographic Studies; Textile Culture; and Writing the Visual.

“Our postgraduate students enjoy highly qualified specialist teaching and are immersed in a creative and challenging environment, which has consistently turned out artists that are innovative in their thinking and creativity,” says NUA Vice-Chancellor John Last. “This tends to result in an end-of-year exhibition which presents work that is the resolution of intense focus and theoretical rigour.”

The pieces will be on display in the St Georges building and The Gallery at NUA, both on St Georges Street near St Andrews Hall, between the hours of 10am and 4pm until Tuesday 14th September (except Sunday).
