Reliably informed

You’re a student in the creative arts. You’ve been working throughout college or university to perfect your own style and develop your specialism in a particular medium, all leading up to that final show where you can display your finest work. And then COVID-19 happened. Suddenly, there’s no final show any more, no chance to proudly display what you’ve achieved like those who came before you.

Well, despite the challenging conditions, there is still a chance to see works from final year college and uni students across Teesside. Launching on Friday 14th August and running until Saturday 5th September, Middlesbrough’s Pineapple Black gallery celebrate their reopening by hosting the No Show Art Show (see what they did there?), providing a showcase for rising creative talent from the area.

Featuring work submitted through an open call to students in the Tees Valley, a broad spectrum of creative media will be on display, from fine art to fashion, textiles to music. Plus, as Pineapple Black is one of the largest gallery spaces in the region, social distancing at this real-life, physical exhibition will be a piece of cake (but rest assured that they’ll have all of the necessary health and safety precautions in place too). The students will get the exhibition they’ve all been working towards, and you’ll get a glimpse of creative ‘ones to watch’ in the process.

The No Show Art Show takes place at Pineapple Black, Middlesbrough from Friday 14th August-Saturday 5th September
