Congratulations to Sam Houston, BA(Hons) Fine Art graduate, who has been invited to show a piece of work titled Persist in the ‘Federation of British Artists Futures‘ exhibition, taking place at the Mall Galleries, London. The exhibition features ‘outstanding art graduates from 2013’. “I’m delighted to be selected for this exhibition, and I’m really looking forward to it,” said Sam. He added that the exposure gained from the ‘Now Falmouth’ exhibition, which also took place in London, organised by his fellow Fine Art students, secured his invitation into the FBA Futures exhibition.
Since graduating from Falmouth, Sam has been continuing his practice, exhibiting in galleries nationwide. In February, Sam will be exhibiting among fellow Fine Art graduates in an exhibition titled ‘New Beginnings’ at Porthminster Gallery in St Ives. Sam said “I’m really excited to return to Cornwall and see everyone again,” adding, “Falmouth gave me the knowledge and confidence to keep working and experimenting, and time is showing that hard work does pay off eventually. Falmouth’s reputation has helped me along the way, and I have to thank all the tutors for all their support”.
The FBA Futures exhibition takes place between 21 January – 25 January 2014. Work online from 17 January at: http://mallgalleries-shows.com/
The ‘New Beginnings’ exhibition takes place between 08 February – 01 March 2014.
