The Graduate Showcase selection is now complete!

We have been hugely impressed with all the entries this year, the quality of work has been extremely high and we thank all the wonderful artists who took the time to submit. We will be announcing details of our selected artists and Graduate Showcase shortly.

Every summer Visual Arts Scotland visit degree shows around Scotland. We look for emerging artists and designers whose work best exemplifies the fresh and dynamic approach to contemporary applied and fine arts which Visual Arts Scotland seeks to support. From the vast range of talent on offer we select aspiring artists who will form our annual Graduate Showcase.

This year, sadly, degree shows across Scotland have not gone ahead due to the COVID 19, with some available online only. We feel strongly as a society that this should not mean our upcoming and emerging talent is denied a chance to show as part of our annual exhibition. The VAS Graduate Showcase 2020 will go ahead! 

The way we celebrate our Graduate showcase is changing. We will be highlighting all of our shortlisted artists, as well as our chosen handful of finalists. All work will be included in a digital showcase. We look forward to sharing with you what form this takes over coming weeks.
