Moray art graduate gets second chance at degree show in new high street gallery

A Moray-based art graduate who missed her opportunity to have a degree show due to Covid restrictions, is now showing it in a new gallery and exhibition space in Forres town centre.

Corrine Marshall, 28, originally from Glasgow, studied BA Fine Art at the Moray School of Art, and now lives in Moray and works at Gallery Pop, where the show runs until 7 August.

She explained, “Lights, Camera… ReAction features several video installations which deal with issues surrounding my life growing up within a strict religious household by which I compare such control with the manipulation of women in the media, referring the ‘Me Too’ movement.

“The show is what would have been my degree show for June 2021 however due to Covid this was restricted to a purely online submission.”

The annual degree show is the highlight of every closing school term and showcases students’ hard work in the culmination of their degree.

Corrine added: “This was restricted to online access this year due to the pandemic and so proved to be quite a challenge for students, so it’s has been an amazing opportunity and experience to finally install work in a physical setting now that restrictions continue to be lifted 

Gallery Pop is open from 10am to 3:45pm Tuesday to Saturday at 44 High Street, Forres. (opposite Town Hall)
