Sixth Form artists at Cheltenham College were given the opportunity to exhibit their artwork alongside artists such as Henry Moore, Marc Chagall and Camille Pissarro. Trinity House Paintings in Broadway held the exhibition from 26 – 29 January with a private view on the opening night.
Head of Art, Ms Jo Millar, commented, “It was a fabulous evening where students talked to the owners and curators of the gallery, as well as members of the public. Private collectors also attended the exhibition during the weekend and three pieces of our students’ work sold to separate buyers. This is of huge significance to both the students and departmental staff and we are delighted with this result. My sincere thanks go to my team who work with such enthusiasm and skill to bring about these achievements.”
Araminta Ramsey (U6, A) sold ‘Accident’, an artwork in acrylic; Lavinia Fairlie (U6, W) sold ‘Looking Through Chapel’, produced in oil and ink; and Lili Sell (L6, Ch) sold ‘Dreamer’, a piece in mixed media.
Future exhibitions at Cheltenham College include the Headmaster's Prize, a display of independent Third Form work on the theme, 175: History and Heritage, celebrating College's 175th anniversary. The projects, along with their artwork from the year, will be on display in The White Gallery for the week after Half Term.
