‘Inception’ – University of Bolton MA Art Exhibition

Following on from the success of their interim Exhibition ‘ Encompass’ at Falcon Mill, Bolton which featured work by various international artists, Sharon Forrest, Stuart Hine, Siobhain Moakes and Tracie Shaylor are now working towards their final MA exhibition ‘Inception’ at the University of Bolton.

Alan Buckingham, Senior Lecturer at the university said:

This is a ‘must see’ exhibition, show-casing the work of four highly successful artists who have already taken the region by storm following the success of their interim show “Encompass” at the Falcon Mill in Bolton. “Encompass” featured the four MA students, Sharon, Tracie, Stuart and Siobhain exhibiting alongside international artists David Mach, Ed Pien and others including Robyn Woolston, Winner of Liverpool Art Prize 2012 and will be featured in a BBC television documentary being screened in the autumn.

This new show in the Innovation Factory will be a major exhibition showing a substantial body of work produced throughout the 12 months of the MA programme. The artists in the show have already won many prestigious prizes and awards, including the winner of the NADFAS best Fine Art student award, winner and runners-up in the 53 Degrees North exhibition and Bolton Open, Neo: Artists, and many others.

Although this will be the group’s final exhibition as MA Fine Art Students, Sharon, Stuart, Siobhain and Tracie, now known as Encompass Collective, state this is only the beginning and they already have a number of forthcoming events and exhibition organised.

The group will present the exhibition ‘Inception’ at the Innovation Factory, University of Bolton. A private view will be officially opened by the Mayor of Bolton on Thursday 6th September 6.00pm to 9.00pm. The exhibition then runs until Thursday 13th September 2012, 10.00am to 4.00pm (excluding weekend). Admission is free
