UNIQUE


There's an art&design shop situated in the University of Ulster's Belfast campus called UNIQUE, a means of connecting the public with the Belfast School of Art student body, recent graduates and alumni. Works of art and fine craft can be viewed and purchased there plus the space is also used for events. 



As an alumni member I was included in an email shot for an upcoming event called Secret Card Exhibition. I was posted a card, heavy watercolour paper, understanding that if it were sold the proceeds would go to support UNIQUE. Everyone's cards are exhibited together, the signatures unseen on the card back...so if you took a chance to purchase something you liked you might well end up with a card drawn or painted by an established or upcoming NI artist.

I've no problem donating a little artwork to help support current art students. Putting something back (I hope it sells).

So, because it''s a secret exhibition, I can't post an image of what I submitted. However, if you do call in to have a look and you follow what I doodle then you'll probably spot it...

'Ulster University’s Secret Postcard exhibition will be open to the public from 5.30pm on Thursday 17th May at the Belfast campus on York Street.'
