Newcastle University Master of Fine Art 2018 Summer Exhibition presents multidiscipline emerging artists that coincides with the Great Exhibition of the North.


Newcastle University Master of Fine Art students warmly invite you to this summer’s 2018 postgraduate degree show preview taking place on Friday 24th August 2018, 6-9pm in the University’s fine art department. Home of the recently refurbished Hatton Gallery, the King Edward VII Fine Art Building houses the Master of Fine Art graduate programme, a two-year postgraduate course designed to establish and extend students’ careers as contemporary artists.

Each August the MFAs take over the fine art building and develop fresh and ambitious work to fill the beautiful studio spaces that span over five floors. The result is unique and often site-specific work that responds to the environment and makes the most out of the large-scale spaces available. With the addition of the newly renovated Hatton Gallery space, this year’s 13 Masters Degree students are excited to showcase the results of their research and development over the course.

The MFA produces an eclectic mix of work that reflects the diversity in current practice and makes the most of the fertile resources available in workshops and tutorial support at Newcastle University. Students work across a range of traditional and new media, showcasing painting, drawing, sculpture, print-making, digital media and moving image works.

Maintaining a reputation as one of the UK's leading centres for art education since the 1950s, Newcastle University has performed consistently well in student satisfaction polls and the Fine Art department is ranked number one in the U.K. in the Sunday Times University Guide. The current Master of Fine Art course is led and taught by leading practicing art professionals who nurture and encourage the best in creative innovation and rigour. An exciting visiting speaker programme of national and international eminent artists, curators and creative professionals engages critical discussions on art practice in seminars, workshops and one to one tutorials.

Visitors are invited to the private viewing of the MFA show on Friday 24th August from 6-9pm to celebrate the culmination of achievement over the academic year. Refreshments will be served.

Current 2018 MFA Exhibitiors are:

Alice Adams, Shaney Barton, Eleanor Curry, Elizabeth Green, Peter Hanmer, Abigail Aguilar Holguin, Paul Jex, Hania Klepacka, Carole McCourt, Jenny Mc Namara, Rebecca Reed, Gill Shreeve and Yan Yin.
