Open Submission staff show at Norwich University of the Arts Gallery
In January 2015 the Gallery at NUA will exhibit works selected for the Open Submission staff show.
The exhibition, entitled ‘Hidden in Plain Sight’, reflects the active engagement of NUA staff with creative practice across a range of subject disciplines in arts, design, architecture and media. The intention of the exhibition is to bring to the attention of our students, and our wider University and City communities, the high quality creative outputs of staff who are the forefront of teaching and creative practice.
The final selection of works has been made by Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery Curator of Modern Art, Hannah Higham and NUA Visiting Professor Nichola Johnson, former Director of the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts.
