The second Art and Design Show, exhibited in The White Gallery and Thirlestaine Long Gallery, celebrated the creativity and hard work of the GCSE, AS and A Level students this year. The variety of work on show was vast, with small and large pieces by Resistant Materials students dotted in amongst the artwork. A large drinks bar, made by one of our students, welcomed guests on entry into the exhibition.
The focal point of the night was a fashion show of Textiles pieces, organised by Lili Sell as part of her Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), where Fourth Form modelled the garments produced by Fifth and Sixth Form students. Lili also organised a raffle with all proceeds going to Winston’s Wish.
The Art department was fortunate to be able to re-exhibit three pieces of Sixth Form work that were sold at Trinity House Paintings, an art gallery in Broadway, in January. Other pieces on show included work in paint, print, glass, ceramics and film, which brought a new dimension to the exhibitions held here at College.
The exhibition will be open on Speech Day with Mrs Jo Millar (Head of Art) and Mrs Kirstie Naish (Head of Textiles) available from 2.00pm – 3.00pm.
