FALMOUTH University's MA Show offers a chance to view dynamic works of art from "tomorrow's creative leaders". Featuring over 25 graduating masters students from The Falmouth School of Art, it's an opportunity to view the latest UK and international talent in the disciplines of art and environment, contemporary fine art and authorial illustration.

Opening with a public preview on Tuesday, the full exhibition runs from next Wednesday until next Friday, September 6, and will be held at the university's Falmouth Campus.

Whether grounded in professional practice, creating imaginative scenarios, following a line of enquiry, testing ideas or experimenting with materials, the show marks the culmination of a period of intense re-evaluation or exploration.

Divided into three exhibitions, visitors can see a range of subjects. Students from Art & Environment present works in response to current environmental crises. The exhibition features pieces undertaken in collaboration with course partners, which include Cape Farewell, The Eden Project, the Centre For Contemporary Art & The Natural World and Cornwall's Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Illustration: Authorial Practice explores concepts from the social and political, to the philosophical and biographic. Outcomes on display feature animation, graphic novels, illustrated books, installation, sign-writing and photography.

Meanwhile, MA Fine Art: Contemporary Practice features experimentation, research and creation of the unexpected. Visitors will see original works from digital media and painting to installation and sound art.

The main show runs from 10am to 5pm, September 3 to 6, at Falmouth Campus, Woodlane, Falmouth.
