The 2010 Arts Degree Show at Plymouth Uni.

I went to this year's degree show at my old alma mater and was pleased to see a very good quality exhibition. One development I'm glad to see happening is an increasing knowledge of the world's environmental problems. I'm glad to know eco-art is on the rise amongst the newly graduating artists.

One of my favourite artists from this year's show is Rosemary Gibbon, see her work at:

Another artist I liked a lot in the show is Matthew Gorman. His online portfolio is at:

I also liked the work of Isobel Taylor:, Emily Trott: who made these videos:
