Foundation Year Show at UCA Canterbury

Saturday, May 31st, 2014

31 May 2014

My son Maxim McKay-Jones has completed his Fine Art Foundation Year at UCA Canterbury. The private view for this excellent show and all the graduation shows at UCA Canterbury was on Friday evening, featuring Fine Art, Design, Architecture and Media. The exhibition is open until 13th June and if you’re in the area I would urge to visit and see the exceptional talent displayed at the University for the Creative Arts Canterbury.

Here’s some of my son’s work concerned with geometric forms taking inspiration from his love of Maths
