Oxford Brookes' annual Fine Art Degree Show - this year the culmination of three years' work by 34 students - opens on Friday May 10 at 6pm and runs for a week.

'BA Cubed' showcases a hugely diverse range of works from artists who come from Oxford, the UK, the Arctic Circle and the Caribbean. The pieces explore themes such as physical touch, our experience of landscape and the merging of science and art. It is a collection of works dealing with the relationship of all of us with our surroundings.

The exhibition launches in the new Glass Tank exhibition space in the Abercrombie building at Gipsy Lane with an opening speech by the internationally renowned artist Tamarin Norwood. More work is displayed in the University's Richard Hamilton Building and the Drama Studio at the Headington Hill campus.

Student Bette Wood commented: "Rising to this finale would not have been possible without the unrelenting drive instilled in the environment at Brookes; both by the staff and by our peers."

Oxford Brookes University offers one of the best and most challenging Undergraduate Fine Art BA programmes in the country. Alison Honour, Head of the School of Art, said: "The Fine Art degree at Oxford Brookes encourages students to engage critically, explore imaginatively, take risks and form an independent fine art practice."
