University Centre Peterborough Student Has Work Featured In ‘Made In 2022’ Art Exhibition

University Centre Peterborough is delighted to announce that one of our student’s artwork has been selected to be included in the ‘Made in 2022’ art exhibition, being displayed in Peterborough Cathedral.

All of the artwork pieces displayed in the exhibition are based on people’s experiences throughout the year 2022. Shelton Johnson, a level 5 Digital Arts student, used his experiences during the pandemic to inspire his oil painting, saying “The painting was done in memory of my wife’s mother and grandmother, who both died in the same year, both of them featuring with my wife at a crossroad”. Shelton felt his painting, Angel of Death, was perfect for the exhibition after seeing the opportunity on the Cathedral’s website, and felt the painting fit the surroundings; “because it is a religious painting this led me to believe that it could be chosen as it would fit into the surroundings of the cathedral”.

Shelton has felt that studying at University Centre Peterborough has really pushed him to enter more events, and put this artwork out into the world more, saying “The course [BA (Hons) Digital Arts] has encouraged me to get my work out there by means of social media platforms and events, when possible”. Shelton also described the feeling of being selected to be featured in such a fantastic exhibition, and having the chance to showcase his experiences during 2022; “I was honoured to have my artwork shown in such a well-known place like the Cathedral. With so many visitors each day means that my artwork will be seen by a wider audience, so it’s an honour and a privilege”.
