STOCK is a collaborative exhibition at the OXO Bargehouse in London formed by soon to be graduates from Fine Art and Contemporary Arts Practice courses from Bath School of Art and Design.

We still need your help however! We're still in need of £4,700 to cover numerous expenses - such as transporting work from Bath to London, printing catalogues to commemorate the show and as souvenirs for visitors as well as providing an array of entertainment throughout the week.
We are a group of 46 Bath Spa University students exhibiting at the fantastic venue of Bargehouse OXO building, located on the South Bank in the centre of London. We comprise of a range of disciplines, from courses Fine Art and Contemporary Arts Practice. This is an exclusive exhibition for Bath Spa students representing the high quality, diversity and originality of work from graduating students of this year. This is a great chance for us all to exhibit at a key location that will bring in a steady flow of visitors, and an amazing opportunity for us to promote our work! Ultimately, this will be a spring board for the start of our future careers. Your generosity will be hugely appreciated, and it will also be an opportunity for you to get your hands on a piece of artwork by one of the 46 exhibitors as a thank you!
