Solent hosts new exhibition

More than twenty artists, designers, photographers and illustrators are creatively celebrating the city’s annual boat show with a stunning new exhibition, entitled Float, hosted by Southampton Solent University from 11-20 September.

Over the summer, renowned artists joined Solent University staff, students and associates to produce works that celebrate flotation – using mostly blue, black, white or greenish hues.

The Float exhibition is the brainchild of the Graphic Design Senior Lecturer Steve Lannin: “Every year, thousands of visitors from all over the world come to the city for the Southampton Boat Show. We wanted to produce an event that not only celebrated this important city occasion but also showcased the region’s creative talent.”

Works from the exhibition will be available to view at Southampton Solent University’s East Park Terrace campus and its Below Bar Space from 11-20 September.

For those unable to visit the exhibition, the works will also be available to view and buy online at in the public and alumni section.

Opening times for the two exhibition spaces are as follows:

Concourse Gallery, Southampton Solent University, East Park Terrace, Southampton SO14 0YN from 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday.

Below Bar Space, Southampton Solent University, Floor 2, 9 Castle Way Southampton SO14 2BX, 9am-6pm, Monday to Friday and 9am-1pm Saturdays.
