Event Overview

The University of Cumbria's Institute of Arts is delighted to open its doors to the public to host POSTREMO, starring the Masters class of 2022.

Exhibition Opening Event: Thursday 1st September 5.00 to 7.30pm.

Location: The Vallum Gallery and Fine Art Studios

The title, Latin meaning 'finally', was chosen by the students and is, in part, a reference to the recent Covid pandemic and lifting of Government restrictions, making a live public event now possible. Like so many, the students involved in POSTREMO have all had to adjust to different working environments, whether online or within shared creative spaces.

Moreover, the exhibition comes at the end of a period of intense study leading to the completion of their final MA Project. For many this will mark the closing of an important chapter as a student at the University of Cumbria before they embark on their professional careers as creative practitioners. POSTREMO features work from two Masters programmes and cohorts - MA Contemporary Fine Art and MA Creative Practice - 19 creative practitioners in total.

MA Contemporary Fine Art
Gabriel Baker Bennett/ Katy Cox/ Poppy Cookson/ Abigail Dixon/ Mia Eccleston/ Natalia Sebastian/ Heather Robertson

MA Creative Practice
James Bates/ Natalie Boyne/ Hayley Brown/ Rebecca Butler/ Madeleine Carr/ Archie Grant/ Holly Jones/ Andrea Kershaw/ Michelle Lam/ David Lee/ Martin Pullan/ Danielle Sutcliffe

The diversity of work, and of creative approaches and theoretical perspectives, makes for a vibrant and eclectic mix. An exhibition at the Brampton Road Campus is an opportunity to celebrate the vitality of the collected visions on show - to meet the artists in person and engage with the artworks in the context in which they were intended to be viewed and experienced.

Opening Times: August 30th to September 9th 10am to 4pm — closed Sundays.
