A painting by a University of Worcester Fine Art graduate has been accepted into the Royal West of England Academy Autumn Exhibition.

Holly Kuehn’s work Hut is one of the 541 works selected for the 160th Autumn Exhibition, which is organised annually by the Royal West of England Academy.

Holly’s work will be presented at the exhibition from now until the 30th December 2012 at the Royal West of England Academy in Bristol.

The 24-year-old graduate from Malvern said: “To achieve a degree and have one of my paintings accepted for the exhibition feels glorious. My new paintings are progressing well, and I am looking forward to discovering where they take me in the future. I am thrilled that my painting is part of this diverse exhibition.”

Holly began painting three years before she decided to do her qualification in Fine Art. She exhibited her work twice during her studies at the Flood Alert: Be Prepared exhibition at The Hive and at is_Space, the opening exhibition of a artist-led studio space.

Dr James Fisher, Fine Art Course Leader at the University of Worcester, said: “Holly is an exceptionally talented painter, so we are delighted but not surprised to hear of Holly's accomplishment in having her work recognised in this competitive open competition. Holly is one of a number of young artists who have graduated from the Fine Art course at Worcester and who are now experiencing fantastic success in the area of painting both nationally and internationally.”
