All art schools host end-of-year foundation and degree shows, exhibitions of work by graduating students. These are an excellent way to see work by a new generation of practitioners and also to buy new art at competitive prices. It is often the first time that graduate artists present their work to an audience beyond their peer group and lecturers. These shows run for between two – four weeks and are generally open to the public. If you see something you like and can afford, don't hang around - buy it!
StateoftheART visits many of these shows and invites talented up and coming artists to join our professional platform. New emerging artists are added year round to the website.

We will post the dates of these Graduate Exhibitions here as they become available. To add your university or college Graduate Exhibition dates please email us the details to info@stateoftheart-gallery.com
