15 – 19 JUNE 2016
Private View: Tuesday 14 June, 6-8pm
As part of Open Eye Gallery’s ongoing collaboration with the FdA / BA (Hons) Top Up in Digital Imaging and Photography Courses at the Hugh Baird University Centre (which are validated by the University of Central Lancashire), we are pleased to present a curated exhibition showcasing work from the BA final year students.
Open Eye Gallery’s Executive Director Sarah Fisher and Curator Thomas Dukes have worked closely with the staff and undergraduates, providing critical feedback and suggesting creative direction on these final projects.
“As a public gallery we exhibit many nationally or internationally acclaimed photographers who have established a powerful voice through their work. Increasingly we are interested in working with the next generation of photographers and finding new voices. Our work with the Hugh Baird University Centre undergraduates has been enlightening – as a cohort, these photographers have something meaningful to say and their tutors have provided them with the skills, experience and knowledge to say it well.” – Sarah Fisher, Director of Open Eye Gallery.
The Hugh Baird University Centre offers the only degree in digital imaging and photography in Liverpool. To find out more about the courses, visit the website.
ABOUT OPEN EYE GALLERY:
We believe photography is for everyone and can be meaningful, informing our present and inspiring positive futures. Open Eye Gallery works with people to explore photography’s unique ability to connect, to tell stories, to inquire, to reflect on humanity’s past and present, and to celebrate its diversity and creativity.
Founded in 1977 Open Eye Gallery is an independent not-for-profit photography gallery based in Liverpool. One of the UK’s leading photography spaces, Open Eye Gallery is the only gallery dedicated to photography and related media in the North West of England. Open Eye Gallery has consistently championed photography as an art form that is relevant to everyone. It promotes the practice, enjoyment and understanding of photography by creating challenging and entertaining opportunities to experience and appreciate distinctive, innovative photographs.
In November 2011 Open Eye Gallery re-launched in a brand new purpose-built home in one of the city’s most prestigious and prominent new developments on the Liverpool Waterfront. The gallery’s position at the heart of the regenerated Waterfront – next to the Museum of Liverpool and a stone’s throw from Tate Liverpool and Albert Dock – cements its commitment to the city and its vibrant cultural life.
As well as presenting a programme of international, high-quality exhibitions Open Eye Gallery houses a permanent Archive containing photographs dating from the 1930s to the present day. The gallery also commissions Wall Works – large-scale graphic art installations for the external facade of the gallery.
Gallery opening hours: 10.30am – 5.30pm, Tuesday to Sunday during exhibitions.
