Student Online Exhibition 2021

Making Your Mark and David Peace Prize 2021

 

Welcome to Making Your Mark, an exhibition of work by students, based both in the UK and overseas selected from an open call. The works were selected by a panel who also awarded the prestigious David Peace Prize 2021 of £500 to nineteen year old Christian Straub from Germany as well as awarding two second prizes each of £200 to Moonju Suh and Theo Brooks.

 

The works shown here demonstrate the talent of those who are soon to complete their study and launch themselves upon the world. We are delighted to see such thought provoking, skillful engraving.

Please browse and enjoy!
