Dr Nick Hampton, Game Art lecturer at Solent University says:
"'CGA Expo’ will exhibit our second year Game Art student's fresh, relevant and exciting artwork. It’s a fantastic opportunity for the students to show their work to the public, and for the public to find out more about current videogame art techniques, including photogrammetry. I think the event will be a great experience for everyone, students and visitors alike."
When asked about the preparation behind the exhibition William Poy, a second year Game Art student, commented:
"It feels rewarding to be able to showcase artwork that we have worked hard on this semester. The fact that we, as a cohort of students, have worked together to organise this even also gives me a sense of pride."
‘CGA Expo’ is open to the public on Friday 08 April (1pm-4pm) in The Spark building, at the far end of The Whitebeam room (TS114), book your free ticket here, it’s a fantastic opportunity for members of the public and prospective students to see examples of students’ work.
