Marylyn took advantage of all the opportunities available to her. She took part in the Study Abroad programme, where she studied in Budapest, and also contributed to other University-organised projects.
This included exhibiting her art at the Horse Hospital in London, painting a mural in Reading town centre with artist Pavlo Keresty, and creating and exhibiting work at the Nova Perla Gallery in the Czech Republic.
She also designed a permanent exhibition at Didcot Railway Centre – highlighting the Centre’s use in film over the past century – as part of the Reading internship scheme.
“Working with artists was a fantastic way to learn what a professional art career could look like. Exhibiting at different galleries gave me skills in curation, planning and organisation.
“These experiences also gave me exciting deadlines to work towards and allowed me to be ambitious with my projects.”
“The opportunities we were given at Reading, such as exhibiting in London and abroad, gave us experiences we couldn’t otherwise have had so early in our careers.”
