We’re immensely proud of the fact that at Croydon College, we have our own Gallery. You’ll find the Parfitt Gallery at the centre of the Croydon School of Art in the Fairfield building on College Road.
The Gallery stages exhibitions by established artists and designers alongside shows by staff, students and work from our artist-in-residence programmes. It’s a fantastic opportunity for our students to show their work in a professional environment where it will be seen by members of the public as well as the College community.
Alumni of the School of Art include the sculptor Juan Muñoz, Helen Chadwick and Sean Scully who have both been Turner Prize nominees, and award-winning scenic designer Ian MacNeil. So why not pop in – you could spot the next Turner Prize-winner at the start of their career!
Our shows attract a lot of media attention: click on the links below to read about past exhibitions.
