Art Exhibition 2017
Falmouth School once again held the annual art exhibition last week, showcasing GCSE Art, design and A level work in both Art and Photography. The exhibition was once again displayed in the school foyer which was transformed into an exciting gallery displaying some incredibly professional and skilful pieces, with some outstanding creative and technical results from students in a broad range of media.
There was a fantastic atmosphere, with the evening celebrations well attended by students, families and the local community. Visitors had the opportunity of voting for the most creative and technical piece of art shortlisted by teachers in these categories. Following a brief deliberation on the votes, the winners were announced by our special guest the mayor of Falmouth, Grenville Chapel, who attended the evening with his wife.
With only four prizes up for grabs and the standard of competition high, all nominated students had done superbly well to be recognised. The GCSE Art technical award was won by Jenna Morgan for her superb portrait titled ‘Self-Identity’, with Lois Hills painting titled ‘Elephant Hunter’ named as the winner of the GCSE Art creative award. Hannah MacDonald picked up the A Level Art technical award for her work based on ‘Body image’ and the award for A Level Art creative award rounded things of, with Cameron Lis winning the prize for his series of paintings based on ‘War’.
Head of Art at Falmouth School, Billie Lee-Smith said “Our annual art exhibition continues to celebrate and showcase our student’s creative and artistic talent. Art enables our young people to realise their creativity and more importantly reflect students’ individuality, interests and expression.”
“I am very proud of our students’ success and the hard work that they put into achieving their full potential in this creative area with the help of their teachers. The exhibition is an opportunity to show off their hard work but also to inspire others with their creativity and skills. The quality of work improves every year and that this year’s exhibition is reflective of the examination success of the year group. This is something that we celebrate and will continue to build on,” she added.
The exhibition will remain displayed in the school foyer into the next term and if any member of the public wishes to view the exhibition they can do so by contacting the school.
