Uxbridge College goes to Hayes

Art & Design students from Uxbridge College have shown their original works of art at the Hyatt Place hotel in Hayes.

The eclectic Capture exhibition launched with a successful Private View and was then opened to the public. The work was specially created for the event. The multi-discipline exhibition included fine art, sculpture, animation, illustration, photography, architectural design, graphic design and designs for interiors. Inspiration came from a range of sources among which were Southall’s Asian culture, the old and new of Hayes and Southall, and the rich history of manufacture in Hayes.

Dominik Strobel, General Manager at the Hyatt Place said: “With our Hyatt Thrive platform, Hyatt is committed to serve the people, the environment and the community and we are absolutely thrilled to have partnered up with Uxbridge College on this special occasion. The students did an incredible job finding their inspiration and interesting facts about our local area for both Hayes and Southall.”

David Storer, Course Team Leader for Art & Design, said: “This collaboration was a fantastic opportunity for the students to experience the working life of being a practicing, exhibiting artist. The exhibition, which was created, curated and run by the students themselves as part of work experience for their course reflected the high quality of work, creative individuality and engaged personal enquiry our course here at Uxbridge aims to instil in its learners.”
