‘What we learnt from the desert’, curated by Ell Hammond is a collection of works, by creatives from the University of Derby who went to Nevada in January, a month long creative trip seeing the bright lights and peaceful deserts of Vegas. Producing works ranging from photography to sculpture to painting to graphic design, we are exploring what our month in Las Vegas meant to us, the memories we shared, the sights we saw and most importantly, the things we learnt. This is the second iteration of this exhibition, expanding this time on what we did previously and reflecting on that time in Nevada

‘Welcome’ - Gabrielle Distin creates large, brightly coloured soft sculptures of everyday objects that are often sentimental but forgotten. In Las Vegas she also started to include the hands that use these objects and that also welcome us into homes wherever in the world they are.
