Wexford Campus School of Art and Design's students of Fine Art saw their creativity take flight when the annual BA exhibition opened its doors at the Wexford Arts Centre recently.

This year's exhibition 'The Caged Bird Sings...' is the culmination of four years of development, experimentation and honing artistic practice. It marks the beginning of each artist's professional career and showcases their dedication to creating strong individual work under a wide variety of themes.

The exhibition features the work of Ann Breen, Deirdre Buttimer, Lisa Dunne, Fran Greene, Gina Murphy, Danny O'Brien, Martin Reading, Sandra Ryan, Breda Stacey and Zane Sutra, '

The Caged Bird Sings...' was officially opened by Visual CEO of IT Carlow Ann Mulrooney. It runs in Wexford Arts Centre until June 16.

Meanwhile back at the campus, graduates of the BA Honours in Visual Communication and Design made a grand exit when they showcased their final projects in their 'Exit 16' exhibition.

Over the past four years, the students had dabbled in different areas of design before deciding on an area of interest to focus their projects on. Work on display includes package and design, typography, game design projects and some more unusual creations.

These included a project which visually documented sleep patterns and another which used games to teach children how to code. Another student developed his own font as part of his project.

Third year students from the same course got a glimpse of what lies ahead of them by exhibiting some of their own work alongside their fellow students.
