Art

There’s a huge range of art at Trevs, with the college art collection being on display year round, termly exhibitions in the college bar and decorations for the college events.

There’s something art related for everyone, whether your interests are in photography, art exhibitions, painting, decoration making or textiles, and if your specific art interests fall outside of these areas then why  not set up a new, specialised art society?!

If you would like any more information on any of the art societies or events listed below, contact your Art Rep, Lydia Kingston.

Art Society

Presidents: Alex Kingdon (a.d.h.kingdon@durham.ac.uk)

Trevelyan Art club is a chilled out society, for all artistic abilities and runs weekly sessions. They are an opportunity for you to come along and get creative! Generally there will be a theme but other sessions are completely free range. We will experiment with loads of different materials across the year, meet with external artists and make our own stash! This society is a fun and relaxed place to practise art together and socialise.

Fine Art Committee

Chair: Lydia Kingston (lydia.kingston@durham.ac.uk)

Fine Art Committee is responsible for organising termly art exhibitions in college and the Julian Trevelyan Art Competition at the end of the Easter term. We meet two to three times a term to discuss and plan the artists we want to exhibit work and where to exhibit the College’s art collection, so you can be responsible for the art around you. This is the only unelected college committee, so there’s more than enough places for everyone to join.

If you love organising events or have a passion for art then this is the committee for you!

Photography
