We’re delighted to share the names of the final year BA(Hons) Fine Art students selected to exhibit at Falmouth Fine Art London, this year taking place at Underdog Art Gallery from 1-3 July.

Falmouth Fine Art London promises to be a diverse celebration of Fine Art at Falmouth, and will be curated by artist and Falmouth Associate Lecturer Jesse Leroy Smith. Exhibitors were selected from the recent degree shows by critic and curator Sacha Craddock. The event, now in its fourth year, gives those artists selected an additional professional practice experience as they complete their studies at Falmouth, and gives contacts based in London and the surrounding the opportunity to view our students’ work outside of Falmouth.

A private view of the exhibition will take place 7-9:30 on 30 June, with an alumni happy hour from 6-7pm the same night. Exhibitors will also benefit from an in situ crit with artist Graham Gussin.

Solidity – Tell Me How You Stand? (30 Days of Sediment)

Below is an invitation from one of our Drawing alumna, Sophie Glover, who is exhibiting with another of our alumna, Ella West, who studied Fine Art here:


“I would like to invite you to the Private view of my joint solo show at The Hundred Years Gallery in Hoxton from 6-9 pm on the 18th of September.

The exhibition, Solidity · Tell Me How You Stand (30 Days of Sediment), will present the first exhibition of collaborative work by myself and Ella West. The pieces have been made during a residency on the island of Kökar, a tiny piece of land positioned between Sweden and Finland in the middle of the Baltic Sea. The project explores the rocks on the island through different concepts of representation, both playful and inquisitive, whilst investigating the historical and anthropological links to the land.

The exhibition will also include a collaborative event with Bristol collective CHAMP. We will be investigating our own experience of the perception of rocks resulting in a participatory performance by CHAMP in the gallery space on the 25th September

The exhibition will run until the 27th of September.”
