Teacher Trio Exhibit Their Masters Art
Three Art teachers at The Radclyffe School are celebrating the opening this week of an exhibition of their work, each having just achieved their Master’s Degree in Art.
The exhibition is taking place at the Cube Gallery in Manchester. The teachers, Miss O’Rourke, Miss Green and Miss Wilson have studied at the Institute of Education, Manchester Metropolitan University.
The Masters course required the teachers to focus on their roles not only as artists but also as educators, and examine the relationship between the positions. In practical workshops they were able to share and critique ideas.
The exhibition is the result of work that’s been created, celebrating the students’ shared experiences and different approaches. The work being shown exhibits a broad range of techniques. Reflecting their specialisms and their teaching practice, Miss Wilson worked with silk screen printing and photography, Miss Green in paper cutting and glass etching and Miss O’Rourke with mixed media and painting.
Although the individual artists began with the same starting point, the responses and resulting outcomes are vastly different. They reflect each individual’s teaching practice and areas of specialism, and cover a wide range of approaches, including: 3D making, collage, embroidery, etching, glass fusing, graphic design, installation, mixed media, painting, paper-cutting, photography, printmaking and textiles.
The exhibition, 10MA3 is at the Cube Gallery at 113-115 Portland Street, Manchester until Tuesday 1 October. Open 12 noon to 5.30pm Monday to Friday and 12 noon to 5pm on Saturday.
