Newcastle University’s postgraduate Fine Art exhibition Mycelium is the summer show that brings together works from 28 artists from both MFA and PhD programmes. The exhibition, which is at Hatton Gallery from Saturday 20th August-Friday 2nd September, is a celebration of a group of graduating artists who have examined and responded to challenges, working independently and collectively. 

Professor Richard Talbot explains: “It is always fantastic to see such determination amongst all the students to achieve something special for their shows in August. Yes, it is about individual achievements and ambitions, but it is also about working together and supporting each other.”
Visitors can expect to see a varied mix of work on display including painting, sculpture, performance and film among others from a broad range of disciplines. Artists of note include Hazel Soper, who has recently exhibited in How We Live Now at Newcastle Contemporary Art; George Robertshaw, an abstract artist who frequently investigates painting both physically and conceptually; Cody Sowerby, whose highly visual work delves into belief systems, mythology and ideology; political artist Eliot Lord; multidisciplinary artist Raphaella Davies-Brennan, who explores humour and comedy in her work; and mixed media artist Andrew Parr, alongside many others.

Mycelium is on display at Hatton Gallery, Newcastle from Saturday 20th August-Friday 2nd September.
