Graduate shows are *the* way to learn about the work of the latest up and coming artists and see original art by future stars. If you’re in London or Manchester, pop along to these shows by recent grads of Blackpool & The Fylde College BA Photography.

Illume is an exhibition featuring the photography of this year’s graduates of Blackpool & The Fylde College. Over 40 students have been working hard to produce their very best work for the show. The students’ work covers many different genres of photography, so there will be something to interest every visitor. From experimental to documentary, Fashion to Fine Art, this work represents emerging photographers from the North West and should not be missed.
Hosted in the recently refurbished Hoxton Gallery in London over a week in June 2012, visitors can expect an exciting selection of photographs, presented in a wonderful location, and of course a warm welcome from the students.

It’s finally here, woohoo! To celebrate the glorious spring weather, here are my top picks from the spring-themed paintings at Art2Arts.Prelude to Spring by Maureen Greenwood
Making great use of impasto and and texture, Prelude to Spring also bursts with colour and exciting composition. It’s guaranteed to make any home or corporate interior spring into life (sorry).
Narcissus 1 by Diana Anderson
Russian-born Diana Anderson quotes Henry Ward Beecher in saying that “Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.” With Narcissus 1, she’s literally brought nature into the picture, and this energetic, bold floral is ideal for the contemporary home interior, or home office.
Freston Woods by Marc Bedingfield
You can’t be blue with bluebells on the way, and this fine art photographic print by Marc Bedingfield captures the spring light perfectly. The closeups in the foreground could make you feel like you’re really there- beautiful stuff.
Calla Lily by Victoria Stothard
Fans of Georgia O’Keefe will appreciate Victoria Stothard’s bold single lily arrangement. Prolific artist Victoria has created and sold over 2000 works, and despite her success, her works remain affordable as she believes art should be accessible to everyone.
Clarity Landscape by CK Wood.
CK Wood’s poppy and landscape paintings sell all over the world, to collectors in countries including Singapore, the US, and Spain. She finds inspiration in the natural beauty of her surrounding landscape, and we can see how spring colours and freshness have influenced Clarity Landscape.
