Emotion, understanding and appreciation of art is probably one of the most subjective issues in the world.

What one person loves, another might hate - but no matter what your tastes, you'll be guaranteed to find something to stimulate, question, challenge and even simply enjoy at the Norwich School Of Art and Design (NSAD).

Every year the School opens it's doors to the public for the End of Year Exhibitions. The purpose of the exhibitions is for final year students to showcase their work.

It's a nervous time for all concerned. The exhibition not only acts as a public showcase for the students work, it's also the time of reckoning for their final degree assessment.

The NSAD is one of the few remaining independent Art Schools providing Higher Education in the UK.

With more than 400 students exhibiting this year, it is probably one of the largest exhibitions in the East of England.

Visitors come from all over the UK to see the students work. There are a wide variety of works on display, including sculptures, paintings, photo media, graphic design, animations, installations, creative writing, poetry, digital imagery, photography, fashion and textiles.

David Girling, Marketing Manager at NSAD said it's always an exciting time for the school:

"It's not very often you get to see so many artists exhibiting all at the same time.

"Every year the students come up with fresh and innovating ideas. Many will go onto high profile jobs within the creative industries in the region, nationally and overseas.

"This is the public's opportunity to see for themselves what they think. I think they'll be surprised at just how good the quality is. I'm sure everyone will find something for them and they'll go away amazed rather than disappointed."
